In case you have missed the story – there are beavers in the wild in Devon again! It is quite a long and complicated story but you can see a full account so far here. As a result we went for a short walk (and a cup of tea) from Budleigh Salterton to Otterton Mill on the River Otter to see if we could see any signs of the beavers.
I suspect that the stretch from the sea to Otterton Mill is just too busy for the beavers except in the depth of the night – there really were a lot of people out yesterday on that walk and quite right too – it was a lovely day.
Well lets hope that the beavers flourish and are not persecuted – its good to see an extinct species return – lets hope its the first of many…..
And well done Devon Wildlife Trust for making it happen
