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 walk up through Dollar Glen and out onto Bank Hill produced an assortment of common woodland species including Willow Warbler, Chaffinch, Blackcap, Song Thrush, Blackbird and the common tit species. A Buzzard was over the woods with Meadow Pipits and Carrion Crows on the hill. Back in Dollar, a Pied Wagtail was feeding on the lawns of the academy and a Dipper was feeding a fledged juvenile on Caddis Fly larvae. Flowering plants consisted of: Bluebell; Broom; Daisy; Dandelion; Dog Violet; Gorse; Herb Robert; Primrose; Red Campion; Speedwell; Stitchwort; Wild Garlic; Woodruff and Wood Sorrell. The only Butterfly was a male Orange-tip.
