Lunch was again in the Visitor centre. This one was of pasties, scones + cream + jam,crisps followed by fruit and chocolate cake. Outside the goose was making himself heard as we assembled outside after lunch.
For a time I was trapped inside the doorway but I did get the opportunity for some close-up shots.
The goose continued to honk at all of us when were outside.
This excitement was happening while were waiting to see if the vet had given permission to take the European Beaver out of its ‘hospital’ pen. On my way back from the loo I stopped to see the birds in the pen with the goats.
Once word came that we could see the European Beaver we walked out through the farm buildings past teenagers working on the water vole cages to a big open field.
Once off the truck and his cage was opened the beaver cautiously came out.
Initially the beaver did bump into the boards to express displeasure at being disturbed.
This beaver was not from the local group whose ponds we had been visiting the previous evening. It had been injured in a fight and had been brought to the centre to recover.
