Beaver updates

I can only imagine you have all been waiting with bated breath for the next installment of the Stanley Park wildlife saga...  

Returned on Tuesday and spoke to the very nice volunteer at the 'Nature House'; there are two pairs of beavers living in the park in separate lake as well as the otters...  Three hours later, I'd seen three beavers, one very happily munching on some trees.  

The first beaver family are apparently in trouble with the park as they keep trying to block the exit to the lake; every night they fill it with sticks and mud and every morning the rangers dismantle it (see left)... I hope they don't get evicted!  

Off to a 'bio blitz' there today where we will be catching (and releasing) hummingbirds and bats apparently...
