Thread: Wasp nests and Pine Martins

    Wasp nests and Pine Martins

    I was out walking my Teckel yesterday yesterday afternoon.
    In a corner of a large field I found a Wasp nest in the ground.
    Something had been digging it out, disturbed ground and claw marks.
    Today, a local posted on our village website a video of a Pine Martin digging out a wasp nest.
    Is this common behaviour?

    Not familiar with pine martens doing this, but have found nests dug up before and based on other evidence had assumed it was a badger.

    Lots of badgers and no pine martens where I now live, my young gsp stuck his nose in a disturbed ground wasp nest....much to his regret. No doubt what had dug this nest.

    No I won't have it! Badgers are cute fluffy countryside animals that live on happiness and dreams and would never dare to harm other wildlife. Or at least thats what I've been led to believe by Countryfile and Chris Packham

    I won't have it either, a diet of peanuts with the very occasional earthworm falling to a delinquent minority?
