A walk just before dusk along the Ericht just south of Blairgowrie. Word had reached me that a trap had been set for the beavers there. The river was in full spate with the thaw.
Floes of greenish ice raced past on the current. I saw no sign of any trap: it must be lower down nearer the confluence with the Isla.
The habitat along this stretch of the Ericht should be good for beavers with a lot of willow along the banks.
I took this photograph just by the sewage pipe that crosses the river on its way to the sewage plant.
Here is a web site that I discovered recently.
Well worth a look, I think.
