How the beaver survived the drought

Submitted by Looduskalender EN on Sat, 24.08.2019 - 10:19

Posted by the Animal of the Year Team

During the drought in July the beaver acted like a true master builder and prepared for even worse to come. The mid-summer dry spells drained smaller creeks and ponds. The earlier flow of water ended and the water level in the beaver habitat started to drop. It was the last minute to check the dams and to seal them.


In the video we see the beaver adjusting the dam and adding more willow branches for more  security.

The weighty fish contingent has not started their journey yet: they might reach the Keila   River estuary perhaps in a month at the earliest. Sooner or later – depending on weather and the water conditions the very large salmons and sea trout come in camera view and maybe  groups of tens of river lampreys that soon begin to gather in the river to be prepared early for the springtime spawning .
