Pine martens filmed playing on a child's swing in a Highlands garden

Recommended Posts

Wildlife watcher Les Humphreys has filmed two pine martens playing on a children's swing set at his home in Ardnamurchan in the west Highlands.

Les, who has been observing pine martens in his local area for 20 years, says it is a nightly occurrence, with the playmates male cousins aged one and two years old.

The Mammal Society, which has shared his video, said pine martens were once on the brink of extinction in Scotland but conservation efforts meant they were no longer endangered - although the breed remains critically endangered in England and Wales.

I hunted feral, introduced animals over here for 40 years because I thought it helped the environment. Now I sit on my verandah watching the rabbits play and my place has become a wildlife sanctuary because they feel safe here 🙂.
