Beaver project

Some European beavers were brought to Bamff in 2002 to begin a pioneering project - the first of its kind in the UK.

Although the Bamff beavers are contained by fences, their areas are so large that they live as if in the wild. In 2006 the first kits were seen and there are now two families established in the low ground of the estate where they have created an impressive wetland habitat, with dozens of dams and pools full of fish and other wildlife.
