We are pretty confident that the top and lake beavers now have kits but we are not sure about the middle beavers. Last night I spent a little time observing the pen and didn’t spot any kits but I did manage to get close to this chap.
I sneaked up to the fence and he was chomping away on some willow we had put into the pond. I was able to watch him for a while. After a few minutes he became aware of my presence and went into the classic ‘I’m a floating log, you can’t see me, go away’ pose. Every time I see these creatures I feel a great sense of privilege to be living and working with them.
