We’ve not seen our furry pond paddler since the last sighting, but we now have more evidence as to what species he might be.
The consensus from the comments on the last post was ‘beaver,’ and the signs seem to say commenters are right.
Given the size of some of these trees, he’s ambitious. So far, there’s no sign of a dam or a lodge, but about half the property is wetland, so it could be anywhere really.
The farmer who’s rented our fields has started to clear out some of the horse paddocks, as we’re not going to be using them. Perhaps we should put this busy beaver (sorry) to work on our fence posts.
