SNH resume a survey of beavers across their range in east-central Scotland

 
SNH is to resume a survey of beavers across their range in east-central Scotland from mid - November 2017.  This will be a continuation of survey work started in summer 2017 at the request of Scottish Government to establish beaver numbers, and to support ongoing work on beavers.   The survey is founded on a repeat of the 2012 Tayside Beaver Study Group survey with a wider coverage of the known expansion of the species’ range in Tayside and adjacent catchments.  The fieldwork will involve foot access to much of the riverbank across previously identified beaver habitat in the Tay, Forth and River South Esk catchments.  It may also involve some water based survey effort working from canoe on the rivers. Surveyors will be looking for field signs and evidence of breeding family groups.
 
 
"It is difficult, given the scale of the catchments, for us to contact all interested parties in advance of the survey work and so we are grateful to Scottish Land & Estates for helping to advise members of our intention and the non-invasive nature of the fieldwork. We also appreciate the help of these organisations to seek on our behalf, your cooperation with us to complete this important work."
