Cornwall Beaver Project 4th July 2018

I was lucky to be invited to the Cornwall Beaver Project at Ladock near Truro yesterday and delighted to get some photos.

Initially cynical about re-introducing European Beavers back into Cornwall after a gap of about 1000 years I think I've been won around by the professionalism of the project and those involved.

Seeing what the animals have done in a small Cornish valley and how it has slowed down the water run off is impressive.

Looking forward to the future now with the beaver becoming a part of the Cornish fauna!

Also a couple of videos taken when it became too dark to take stills!!
