Thread: Arrival of Young Master Pine Marten!

  1. #1

    Arrival of Young Master Pine Marten!

    Hello everyone!

    I don't have much time to participate in the SD just now, but I thought I'd let you know that Young Master Pine Marten arrived, a bit earlier than planned, on Sunday night. He's fine, just not very big, and needs to stay in hospital with Mrs Pine Marten until he learns to eat on his own. Other than that, he's just a perfectly formed miniature mustelid, and we are unbelievably delighted to have him!

    Pretty busy now, but I'm glad I had the foresight to book some stalking with Malc for February, when hopefully Pine Marten Junior will have started dabbling in proper food, which assumes he will also have worked out how to eat, but it looks promising, just a matter of time.

    Now I need to sleep...

    Congratulations mate!
    Don't try feeding him any squirrels just yet though! Baby Pine Martens need milk too!

    Sleep...........good luck with that one.
    Sleep deprivation is the no.1 torture method.
    Well your Mrs.
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Congratulations and best for the wee one.

    Not much a male Pine Marten can do now for a while so when recovered get out stalking or over to Bisley while you still can!
