The Pine Marten

Here woodlandsTV are in the New Forest with Martin Noble to learn about the mysterious woodland creature, the Pine Marten. They like mature woodlands with lots of large trees to climb and build their dens in. Towards the end of the 1800's they were almost extinct but numbers are finally growing, some woodland owners are even building nest boxes up them to encourage their presence and support population growth.

All of Britain's woodlands have been killed, and no one rebuilds them.

Great story. I think over the next 20 years their will be a wave of pine martens followed by the re-colonising of red squirrels. I cant wait. I have nothing personally against grey squirrels but I do like a more natural ecosystem.

Thats pretty interesting. Do you know the name of the actual species? I wouldnt imagine they were the same as what we get here.

Wonderful video. I think we will have pine martens across the country within the next 20-30 years. I think they will make a come-back not dissimilar to that of the otter.

@A Shot Of Wildlife Fox and grey squirrels are what I heard them always called.
