Beavers are back

The trial re-introduction of European beavers to the North Knapdale area has been running since the end of May this year. On Friday I had the opportunity to visit one of the sites where the beavers have been active. Great delight to see signs of beavers at work, including the first beaver dam in the wild in Scotland for four centuries and other signs of the habitat management in which beavers indulge.
