Natural Connections

Modern life in Scotland is increasingly busy. The connections our ancestors had with nature and the land are being lost. As leisure time shrinks, or is filled with hi-tech experiences, opportunities to experience nature become fewer. And yet it is possible to connect with nature on a day to day basis. All around us, the great web of life continues to hold its shape, and nature continues its eternal cycles. Keep looking, listening, smelling, touching - and keep experiencing natural connections.

A lunchtime walk around the west end of Paisley produced some good local birds including Mute Swan, Tufted Duck, Coot, Moorhen, Pied Wagtail and Redwing.

Big news is that the Raven pair are back on the ridge opposite the office. From 08:30, both birds were perched on various parts of the tower of Coats Memorial Church including the north east corner (where last year’s nest was located) and both the south east and south west corners. The birds also flew over and alighted (separately) on the dome of the John Neilston Institute. Both flew off (possibly west) about 09:00.

The birds appeared to be absent for most of the day until 14:00 when first one and then both were perched on the dome of the John Neilston institute. They stood very close together for about 30 minutes before both flew off strongly (separately) in a south east direction
