Recent news is that some of the beavers released in Scotland have built their first lodge. Perhaps nothing special until you consider that the last beavers in the UK were present up until around 400 years ago. The current lodge, which cannot be visited by the public, demonstrates that they have settled in to their new environment and are ready to overwinter. If you wish to see beavers in the wild then it is possible in several countries to which we operate. Of course Canada springs to mind but closer populations can be seen on wildlife holidays in Finland, particularly in the northeast where bear, wolverine and elk also feature. Our Poland holidays also reveal good populations around the Bieszccady Mountains where bison, bear, wolf and lynx are also inhabitants and the Biebrza wetlands which is a great area for viewing elk, the king of the marshes.
