Down by the River - a wildlife story

Postby Geckoo76 » Fri May 19, 2017 7:57 pm

Hello! My name is Sylvie and for the last 4 years I have spent my days off at the river Otter in Devon. It all started when a friend of mine told me about the first wild beavers there. As a keen naturalist and wildlife photographer I just had to go and visit the river. With the first view of the beavers it was done and I got addicted to them and the whole wildlife around them. I followed them through the difficult times of being in danger of being killed/taken away by the government to the start of the trial under the Devon Wildlife Trust and to see ‘my’ beaver lady raising 5 kits last summer. But it is not just the beavers, but otters, badgers, foxes, kingfishers, dippers, wagtails and so much more ,that is worth watching and discovering. Every time I am there I come back with lots of photos and interesting stories to tell and I am happy to share them with you.

Last week I was watching the sand martins and saw how one of these birds took over ownership of a hole from a massive spider. Enjoy the story and pictures:
