I took this photograph last month just downstream from Aberfeldy. Louise and I went for a short walk with Victor Clements after our meeting of the Scottish Wild Beaver Group. The photograph shows the development of a beaver coppiced riparian woodland. Behind the bank of shingle is coppiced willow and further from the water is uncut woodland.

 Were we walking beside the Bez or the Drôme in this photograph? I don't know, but you can see the riparian woodland.

White poplar in its wild bushy shape is everywhere. In the foreground there is a place in the bank where beavers can get in and out of the water.
