Pine Marten Update

While we're not 100% certain, we think that this is pine marten scat - it's too small for fox. There are plenty of neat little piles of it all round our house, evidence of the visits we are getting.

But - we don't think the pine marten's has been in our roof again. This may be because we've had moth balls up there for a week, or it may be that he's found somewhere better to spend these cold evenings. However, we have got mice. They've set about eating the lagging round the water pipes, so we've had to put traps up there, carefully boxed in so the pine marten, if he returns, doesn't get a mouse trap clipped onto his nose.
