A Beaver Kit in the Big Pond

Here is a beaver kit with an adult, perhaps its mother.

We watched the mother grooming the kit and then leaving it to swim and feed. The kit groomed itself while we looked on, entranced.

This evening I walked through the Wet Wood and photographed this well-used feeding station. On the far side of the little pool is a long, low dam that runs for about one hundred metres. Upstream of the pool is a short canal that leads further into a willow wood.
