We went for a walk in Reston this afternoon in an area where we had heard that beavers are active, a stream running through the woods near Lake Audubon..
It was a lovely sunny afternoon and very pleasant in the woods, although the stream was barely visible except in a few places.
We did not see any beavers, but we did see areas around the stream where they had clearly been busy..
We walked on through the woods..
Not very much colour visible in the trees as yet.
Plenty of moss and marshy plants in the area around the stream.
We passed the Walker Nature Centre which was built as a focal point for the trails in Reston and a nature education Centre for young people in the area.
All in all a good walk and we notched up our 10,000 steps for the day even if we didn't see any beavers - maybe another time.
