Beavers Feeding On Birch Bark In The Winter

Every now and then my neighbour, Morgan, complains that there are no photographs of beavers on this blog.

Well, here are some that I found today while looking for illustrations to go with an article that I have written for 'Reforesting Scotland'.

Two of the photos were taken with an infra-red trail camera in the winter of 2008 and the other is a year younger.

I have had very little success so far this winter with the trail cameras. I have managed to catch a young fox, roe deer, pheasants, and an otter sliding its way over a dam.
But the beavers seem to have become very shy of my efforts and I seem not to have arranged things right with batteries, settings and so forth.

Here is a very short and apparently speeded up clip of that otter speeding over the dam.
