The pine martin is back! At about ten to six this morning the same wee juvenile pine martin appeared on the feeders outside the VC. It stayed for about 10 minutes and stuffed itself with peanuts- we are going to have top start putting out a more mixed and suitable diet for it in the evenings-dried fruit, and some meat too. It appears to have a wee white spot on its left shoulder – individual markings on pine martins are very useful identifiers. Lets just hope this become a habitual visit!
This will be my last blog post, as it is unbelievably my last day at Lowes. Soon I will be joining you lovely folks on the ‘reader’ side of the blog community, which will be a great way of keeping in touch with my friends up here and the joys of the coming seasons on the loch.
I just wanted to say one last thank you to you all for all your kind comments and good wishes- they have been very much appreciated. All the staff here have found the blog an enormous morale boost and it has certainly helped us through some difficult times this season knowing there are so many of you out there who care! Thank you all and see on the blog- look our for “ex ranger Emma!”
