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.

The Raven pair on Coats Memorial Church have one flying young. The two adults continue to loaf near the top of the spire but today I watched them interacting with the juvenile. First, one of the adults (the other was nowhere to be seen) joined the young one on the dome of the John Neilson Institute where the young one tried to elicit food from the adult. Then the adult (probably the female) returned to the “loafing area” and the juvenile spent about 15 minutes flapping between the various parts of the tower. About 13:30, the second adult (presumably the male) arrived with a food item and landed near the juvenile. There was quite a lot of begging behaviour until the adult flew off and landed on Oakshaw Trinity Church spire. A few minutes later the young bird followed and eventually the two birds alighted together on the balcony of the Orr Church where the feed took place. The adult then went to join the other adult on the regular perch on Coats Memorial.
