Surveys of beavers in the Rivers Balvag, Leny and Teith in 2012
In response to reports of beaver (Castor fiber) activity in the Trossachs, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) commissioned surveys of the distribution of beavers in the Rivers Balvag, Leny and Teith and tributaries. During the rapid surveys, four field signs were found in two sections of the Rivers Balvag and Leny in July 2012; and numerous field signs near the confluence of the River Teith and Keltie Water in December 2012.
The surveys covered selected sections of the Rivers Balvag, Leny, Teith, Eas Gobhain and sections of the shorelines of Lochs Voil, Lubnaig and Vennacher.
There is a high degree of confidence - all signs were noted by experienced surveyors.
Sections of river and loch bank were surveyed on foot. All signs of beaver activity observed were logged on a GPS.
