Oh my dog - the beavers are gnawing again !!! We went to MY park yesterday and straight away noticed all the damaged trees - in the same spot where they were damaged before (the park people actually cut all those trees down as they were in danger of being blown over) Mom says she thinks the beavers are actually stuck in the lake as the water level has dropped to the lowest we ever seen it in three years and the little creeks they follow to get in and out of the lake are all dried up. This is a picture of their lodge but now you can actually walk out to it as the water has receded that much and it is much bigger (Mom forget to get a new pic of it) In total we counted 12 trees that have been gnawed on and four that have been completely ring-barked. (Ring-barked is an Aussie term and it means when an entire ring of bark around the tree has been removed - this causes the tree to die). As much as Mom loves the beavers she also LOVES trees and hates to see this many being damaged.
