Hatchet...

Directly across the lake from it, at the inside corner of the L, was a mound of sticks and mud rising up out of the water a good eight or ten feet. At first Brian couldn't place it but knew that he somehow knew what it was—had seen it in films. Then a small brown head popped to the surface of the water near the mound and began swimming off down the short leg of the L leaving a V of ripples behind and he remembered where he'd seen it.

Q: Could you paraphrase this red phrase please?
q.v.
#1. The lake looks like "L" shapes...
#2. It was a beaver house.

Q: 'q.v.' is the right expression here? Thanks in advance!
