Beavers released in the Forest of Dean

Exciting news , yesterday we were enjoying sitting by the river Wye at Lydbrook ,we were unaware that above us in the woods beavers were being released into the wild . These are the first beavers to live in the forest for 400 years. It is hoped that as they grow in numbers and build dams ,these will help with the flooding below where we were in Lower Lydbrook.

The river is gorgeous here. There were people swimming and brilliant damselflies and above us scurrying beavers !!
