What a sensational animal...
This is a female Pine Marten that I had the privilege of watching and photographing on the Morvern peninsula at the weekend.
They are a real 'drawcard' species and have an economical value through
tourism. I remember as a teenager travelling hundreds of miles with my
dad just for the chance to see these magical mustelids. My first
encounter with them helped increase my love of the natural world, so I
have a lot to thank them for!
