There are around 300 in the Nationaal Park De Biesbosch and if you know when and where to see them they are fairly photogenic.

  1. Nice one, Stephen! We went to the Biesbosch a few weekends ago but did not see one, it was already past their peak season. Happy to know they are doing quite well there. Posted 6 years ago
  2. PS: you have almost a 100 photos with no location set:

    Can I please ask you to set the country on those? It's very important in JungleDragon to have at least basic location info. Let me know if you need any help.

    1. Will do that next week. Meanwhile I have updated the location for this photo to the exact location as they are still active here. You can pretty much guarantee that they will be there around 20.00 pm and you cant miss where they are as normally there are around 10 photographers there (at the weekend anyway). Also in the same area (by a bridge in the open) is an osprey family that has successfully bred this season. The roads are a little bit different now but the spot on the map is correct even though the buildings (house) are no longer there. Posted 6 years ago, modified 6 years ago
      1. Thank you. Our mistake was that we had a daytime boat trip, it was to celebrate our anniversary. Only there did we learn about the evening yours but it was too late to book one. Posted 6 years ago

The Eurasian beaver or European beaver is a species of beaver, which was once widespread in Eurasia, where it was hunted to near extinction both for fur and for ''castoreum'', a secretion of its scent gland believed to have medicinal properties. Re-introduced through much of its former range, it now occurs from the British Isles to China and Mongolia.
