Werner Sykora is: The Beaver Man

Posted on Posted in blog

June 2010
In may I met Werner Sykora a local ornithologist and Beaver conservationist.
I was quite surprised when he told me that he builds his own sound recording
equipment and made countless sound recordings of Eurasian Beavers during
the last years – mainly inside of the beaver lodges!

He was so kind to sent me a selection of the recordings and gave me permission
to share them.

P.S.: unfortunately Werner Sykora passed away in 2011
