At Kejimkujik National Park

Today we visited 'Keji' as it is locally known, to look for mammal signs and perhaps the animals themselves. Keji is quite a busy park (especially on a Sunday), so the only mammals we saw on our walks were North American red squirrels. They are even smaller than Eurasian red squirrels and just as quick. I finally managed to get a photo of one near the main picnic site, where the animals have obviously become more habituated to humans (and their lunch leftovers no doubt:-)).
We saw evidence of beavers too - classic gnawed tree trunks.
