For the first time in 400 years baby beavers have been born in Cornwall.

The youngsters - known as kits - are living with their parents at the Woodland Valley Farm in Ladstock near Truro.

The Cornwall Beaver Project announced the arrival of the pair at Woodland Valley Farm, after a month of waiting to get a first sighting on the fenced in five acre site.

Since they were released last summer the beaver team say they are transforming the site and creating new wildlife habitat areas.

The team are running walks on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer - where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the new kits themselves.

Find out more about the visits here, and if you don't get to see them you can watch this video by the Cornwall Beaver Project.
