Video: The Elusive Pine Marten

30th June 2017

To record this clip of the incredibly shy and rare Pine Marten was a privilege for sure. After a lot of searching I found what i thought was a Pine Marten trail, early in Spring 2017, After months of feeding and waiting in my wildlife hide on a cold blustery day this little guy appeared for a fleeting few seconds. As you can see from the clip how shy this guy is, he made sure to keep himself down as low as possible to avoid any predators catching a glimpse, and then just as quick with the alarm call of a nearby magpie, he was off into the undergrowth in a flash. This was a very rare experience to capture and just great joy to witness.
