NatureScot (formerly Scottish Natural Heritage) together with the University of Exeter will start a new survey of beavers in Scotland on October 1st. The survey will map the distribution of active territories and assess the health of the population. The survey will cover the River Tay and adjoining catchments such as the Forth and rivers entering Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The general public are being asked to help and can record sightings and field signs of beavers on the smart phone Mammal Mapper app from the Mammal Society (also see The Scotsman).
