Pine Marten  Martes martes

Pine martens are almost totally restricted to Scotland and can be extremely difficult to see. However in the right location they can be tempted out to feed on peanut butter and rasberry jam - they have a very sweet tooth!

 

These images were taken in the garden of a small cottage in the Highlands and I had to cope with clouds of midges in order to take them. I think it was worth it.
