Baby beavers for Scottish beaver trial

Beaver kits spotted at Knapdale

August 2013. The UK's only licensed re-introduction of Eurasian beavers at Knapdale in Argyll, the Scottish Beaver Trial, has announced five newly born beavers - known as kits - have been spotted.

Field Operations Manager for the Scottish Beaver Trail, Roisin Campbell-Palmer, said: "The arrival of new kits means that the beavers have bred every year of the Scottish Beaver Trial. We are now attempting to establish exactly how many there are in total - but five have been observed so far."

Project Manager for the Scottish Beaver Trial, Simon Jones, said: "This is great news for the Scottish Beaver Trial - and for local tourism as more people will want to travel to Argyll to come on our guided walks for a chance to see the new arrivals."

Guided walks
As summer hits its peak in Scotland, guided tours of the Scottish Beaver Trial's site in Argyll are well underway, offering visitors the rare opportunity to learn more about the UK's only licensed mammal re-introduction project. The guided tours take place in the evening and visitors have the chance to see the new beaver kits as they explore Dubh Loch, which is home to one of the Trial's four beaver families in Knapdale.
