It is much easier to see how rewilding can be achieved in Scotland, with its mountains, huge lochs and large open spaces and woodlands. I recently spent a weekend in Scotland, searching for beavers, osprey and pine martens. I also learnt about conflict between some reintroductions and how these are being managed.

Beavers often get bad press for being the cause of flooding, and this is one of the key factors affecting the decision of whether to reintroduce beavers to Britain’s waterways. Heavy rain has caused flooding in Alyth Burn in Scotland, and many theories have linked this flooding to the presence of beavers in the area.
