About this site

The environment, Nature and beauty from a Scottish perspective.

Knowledge is power......but beyond that I don't have a particular agenda to push here. I don't necessarily have answers to the questions our environment is demanding of us.....but I do have the desire to get more people talking about environmental issues even if we don't all see eye to eye.

Problems are unlikely to be addressed let alone resolved unless folk know what is going on around them. And to that end, information & debate are ultimately better than ignorance or sticking our heads in the sand.

PLUS....it's a beautiful, awe-inspiring and sometimes terrifying planet. Put some time aside to marvel at it.

    In all my years spent wandering the British countryside, I’d never seen an Emperor Moth…….UNTIL YESTERDAY!
This one, a female I think because the antennae aren’t feathered, was settled in long grass near the summit of East Lomond in Fife.
Emperor moths are unmistakable with their amazingly beautiful markings, which look freakishly like a mammal or bird face and are likely adaptations to ward off potential predators.
