A Lodge and Two Dams

Autumn is the busiest time for beavers as they prepare for winter.

I had begun to wonder if this lodge had been abandoned, but fresh maintenance work shows that beavers intend to live in it for the winter.

This photograph shows the pond that was created by the building of a dam last year and which is being expanded by the extension of that dam and by the felling of more trees on what is now the shore.

A dry September and October have followed a very wet summer and water levels are low.

This is the second dam below the drive here at Bamff. Like the other dams it is being extended and built up to contain the water in the pond upstream.
