The mystery matriarch of Devon’s growing beaver population

Recommended Posts


It’s a warm, overcast evening in Ottery St Mary. I’m in the company of three members of the Devon Wildlife Trust; Jake Chant, Zoe Hughes, and Steve Hussey.

Today is the first day of the year that the charity has been out to spot beavers. With longer and brighter days now abundant, the conditions are perfect.

The team is hoping to find an adult female beaver called "Pink Tag"; named after a small pink label clipped onto one of her ears. Pink Tag is known for the large litter size she births year-on-year and has recently had several kits - baby beavers.

How Pink Tag came to live in the River Otter is a mystery, one that locals nor the Devon Wildlife Trust has the answer to.
