It's a special moment when a forest wanderer gets a chance to watch wildlife without influencing their behavior.
Recently, as I was returning from a wander through the woods, I was able to witness a beaver as it groomed itself. I am sure the pond keeper knew I was there but he didn't see me as a threat and allowed me to hang out and film him.
I filmed for over an hour and have condensed the footage to six minutes.
Come along and watch as this much maligned woodland creature calmly goes about oiling his coat prior to a days work.
