Sorry. no picture - no picture ever likely! But, news of 'our' pine marten (bele?)
When I first moved up, we had building work going on 'til 2004. Soon after things calmed down, we sometimes glimpsed a pine marten in our wild garden, which we had fenced separately from the back garden for 2 reasons. 1, To keep the dogs out of the pond and 2. Because it still technically belonged to the Council, from whom I was trying to buy the land.
Later, when we were waiting for our friendly builder to fix our broken front step, we found that the/a pine marten was cwtching in the gap sometimes. We had to be sure it wasn't there when the step was fixed, and only had that done to prevent, say, the Postie falling when delivering to us!
No more pine marten.
A virtually complete half-coconut full of fat was... er... removed from hanging on our bird table and taken away, who knows where. Janet assured me that the pine marten must be the culprit! I was very happy for it to have as many coconuts as it liked, but suspected a rat as just as likely!
Yesterday, we were told that a neighbour has been feeding a pine marten for some days!! Even if it comes this way, we are not able to get nocturnal pictures! But I thought you, @ramblingjohn, would like to know! (OK, I;ll admit it, I wanted to make you envious!)
