The beavers were released in late May 2009 and are now settling into their new surrounds in Knapdale Forest, Mid-Argyll.

The project partners are the Scottish Wildlife Trust and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland who will continue to track the beavers' progress.

This trial will help to decide the future of beavers in Scotland.
