Water Rail

It was lovely to collect in the wildlife cameras this morning and find that we had been visited over the weekend by a water rail. We have picked up one before on camera so hopefully it means we have a resident.

The cameras are currently set to find out which beavers are doing what. We need to catch up the yearlings at this time of year to move them on to other projects. This prevents too much aggression from the adults when it’s time for them to tell their teenagers that it’s time to move on. It also means that we can spread the genetic net so that UK beavers don’t become a genetic bottleneck.
