Night camera captures first beaver born in Norfolk in 600 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A baby beaver has become the first to be born in Norfolk in more than 600 years, conservationists say.

The baby, known as a kit, was filmed paddling in water at Wild Ken Hill, near Heacham, where this year's BBC Springwatch was based.

Two pairs of Eurasian beavers were reintroduced at the site last year.

Ecologist Lloyd Park said the discovery of the kit represents "an historic moment" for the return of the species.

The "ecosystem engineers", known for creating habitats for other animals, were hunted to extinction in Britain for their fur, glands and meat in the 16th Century.
