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.

Friday, July 22, 2016

A walk around the local patch in South Cardonald this morning produced a good 27 species including late singing Blackcap (2) and Willow Warbler (1), a pair of Bullfinches, fledged Blue Tits and Robins, a pair of Stock Doves and still lots of song from resident birds, particularly Wren, Blackbird and Song Thrush (3). The council has flailed the paths around the area, clearing quite large areas of encroaching vegetation.
Later, a Buzzard was being mobbed by crows over Montgomery Court near Arkleston Farm. Incidentally, most of the fields in Arkleston Farm have been left unplanted this year and are now covered with rank grassland and weeds. Presumably the tenants are finding their sand and gravel business so lucrative that it is no longer worth raising crops.
