Beavers are to be introduced on land managed by the English National Trust as part of plans to ease flooding

Well nobody thinks that it’s good
When their house is subsumed by a flood
But it seems that the beaver
Could be the reliever
Of water in your neighbourhood

    That is a very interesting article. A little like reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone, it is good to see attempts to redress the imbalances of nature and ecosystems caused by human intervention. I wish the little critters the best, and in the longer term that this works.

    As far as I know, beavers were never in Ireland, so likely would not be a good solution here: I am not a fan of introducing foreign species as you have no idea what impact it will have on local species.
