    That takes me back to geography lessons about Canada at primary school
    … we listened to Travel Talks on the radio and looked at photographs in a pamphlet (I loved the smell of the new pamphlets). 

     I can recognise the stump of a tree felled by beavers at 20 paces … even now 60+ years on … and I've never seen one in real life 😂

    There were lots of signs of Beaver activity not far from us, but sadly no actual sightings.

    Haven’t seen any of the wild beavers on the River Otter near us. However, some years ago, a local wildlife park installed a little family in their fenced in lake. We booked a viewing, arrived just before dusk and a handful of us were taken to sit by the lake. Very hard to keep still and quiet while being attacked by mosquitoes, but we were rewarded when the parents with a couple of kits emerged from their dam and started collecting twigs and swimming round the lake. Magic! Nearly worth the scratching afterwards!
