Unless they have been introduced very recently beavers don't live in Lake Windermere. They became extinct in England hundreds of years ago, but I believe they have been re-introduced in some places recently.

BBC story from 2005

I do not think muskrats have ever lived in England. (Apart from a song called 'Muskrat Love' I know nothing about them.)
