Pine Martens on our squirrel feeder

Jun 17, 2020

At our own house just a few miles from Loch Cottage, Pine Martens have become semi regular visitors to our red squirrel feeder boxes. There are only about 4000 of these beautiful predators in the UK, of which about 95% are in northern Scotland. They visit late in the day so don't encounter the squirrels, and the squirrels don't seem put off by their scent so we are happy and privileged to be able to see both. If visitors are very lucky they may see a Pine Marten while out walking in the wooded areas locally
