Winter has arrived early at EBF! The beaver pond had a skiff of ice over it by October 17th, but the beavers have since punched through and continue retrieving logs from the feeding pile to carry across to their cache just a few metres away. They chose to build their lodge on the east side of the pond, which is close to the feeding station (and away from our walking paths!). It will be interesting to see how long they keep the water open. We will keep supplying them with poplars as long as they can access them
