The lawn (mid left in this photo) that the beavers maintained by grazing is on its way to extinction.
Here is what was the bottom dam. The parapet is heightened and the dam has been extended a bit to the south (the left side of the picture).
The existence of the new dam, still only a plug across the burn, has raised the water level below this dam.
This is the new bottom dam from upstream. It is one of a flight of four in the sequence that runs below the drive to Bamff House.
It is built across the burn just north of a large old Sitka spruce tree. Last winter overflow from the dam upstream to the west flowed round the trunk of this tree. What will happen this winter?
