I saw my first Beaver in Scotland earlier this year, but was unable to photograph it. I've since made four visits to Devon getting to know the river down there. While I'm sure there were some near misses on at least a couple of those trips, and although Mink and Otter were seen, it took until the fourth trip to finally see Beavers. This is a kit which was born earlier this year. Not a great photo as it was almost completely dark.
