We think we may have a whole family of Pine Martins visiting the garden. Gordon (one eye) paid a visit two nights ago. Last night, in torrential rain, under a sky lit by flashes of lightning and accompanied by a timpani of thunder, two other PMs called in. Or at least, we think there were two.
The one above, photographed earlier in the year, we believe to be the female. We think she was second to arrive last night. Before her came what appeared to be an even smaller PM, but it's too early in the year for young which are born in April/March. I'll have to look carefully tonight to see if it still has pale, woolier fur which the young loose in the first winter moult. Of course, we might be wrong. It might have been the female on both occasions. Rain and thunder flashes don't make for ideal viewing conditions.
