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 real dawn-to-dusk day started with the dawn chorus at Rowardennan car park and finished with a beautiful orange sunset off Largs. The woods north of Rowardennan held most of the summer migrants (Wood Warbler, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Garden Warbler, Tree Pipit, Redstart and Cuckoo) with only Pied and Spotted Flycatchers to come. Also present in the area were other summer migrants (Common Sandpiper, House Martin, Swallow) and some good residents (Jay, Green Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Dipper, Grey Wagtail). An encounter with a flock of wild goats (9 adults and one kid) and a profusion of Primroses contributed to what was a very pleasant trip. This evening, Black-headed Gulls and Sandwich Terns were flying off Largs seafront against the backdrop of that beautiful sunset.
