Well folks, a new month brings new excitement here at Lowes. Congratulations and thanks to the eagle eyed webcam watchers who spotted early this morning, our first Pine Martin visitor for a long time, at our window feeders.
We used to have a resident family here at Lowes, but over the last year they have been consicuously absent, theories have ranged from feral cat competetion , to local clearfelling being the cause.
This pine matrtin which apeared this morning appears to be a juvenile, probably dispersing from its birth family at this time of year, looking for a teritory of its own- which is good news for us as it might decide to stay around!
There was great excitement in the office this morning as we rewound the overnight camera recording and watched the wee beastie filling itself up on peanuts- Fiona tells me its their tradtional favorite around here! lets hope we get return visit soon.
