Beaver!

I went out for a run yesterday evening with the sole intention of finding these elusive creatures called a beaver.

I had a great time in the hot and humid trails but ducked off on to the road to get to a very good marshy area about 2 miles from where we are staying and was amazed to hear a beaver eating the base of a tree and then to see it topple. This beaver then dragged a 30 metre tall tree with a 6 inch trunk across the area of view to its dam....the sheer brute strength was incredible.

Who said running was about distance when you can see such wonderful sights.

  1. It is not just Canada where there be hazards. We could have done with some Beavers in SOuth London yesterday as 25mm of rain fell in about 15 minutes just after me and Mrs UB got in from our run. Very flooded!
