    Default Pine Martins

    Can anyone give me an idea of the number of martins in the area, have managed to catch sight of one last week and my other half saw one last year, so is this a lucky sighting or will I be able to see more?? George

    I saw two (or the same one) around this time last year but have not seen any since. We are near Wester Loch. I know other people in the area have seen them too.

    The one I saw was near Westerdale and looked like it was carrying a chick of some description, I was pretty close. Would love to find the time to see these more often and capture them on camera, have seen the footage on YouTube posted on this forum and got to admit I really like Martins- they seem to be the up market, better dressed version of stoat/ weasel / polecat family!

    One rampaged through my turkey flock a couple of years ago, would have had them all had we not got to them quickly. Seen it back yearly.
