Beavers released into enclosure in Essex, South-east England

Following the post on 7th November 2018, a pair of beavers have now been released into a 4 ha enclosure on Spains Hall Estate in Finchingfield, Essex in the east of England to help prevent flooding. The estate is now owned by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. The environment Agency will monitor flows in Finchingfield Brook that runs through the enclosure to see if the activities of the beavers improve water quality and help reduce the risk of flooding. They will compare the findings with more conventional flood prevention methods (BBC News, Braintree and Witham Times, Essex News, ITV News).
