Well, one of the things that I keep coming back to when I look around Loch Leven and see the various animal and plant populations and the work that the reserve officers do, is balance. Everything is in such delicate balance. I’ll come back to this in a future post because it is this balance and interconnectedness that informs the main work I’m planning.
