Pine Marten's move in at Pottery House

We've suspected that a pine marten had moved into the area, in fact we thought that maybe be hole that had been made in our compost heap was his.

This morning our suspicions where confirmed, when this fellow was seen coming out of the heap and foraging around the garden. We'd left some scraps out for him and one by one he took them and carried them away into the undergrowth.

Strange thing was he was here in the morning, about 9.00. Thought they where mostly nocturnal.

This photo's not very good, will keep a look out for him over the next few days and see if we can get some better pictures.

Not a bad photo John seeing as they move so quickly - I guess it is still dusky now at 9 a.m. We've had them here in the daylight when we first moved in - wondered what they were! Keep clicking away.
