July 2013 – Yorkshire Pine Marten Project news

Grey squirrels seemed to turn up literally an hour or so after we’d put out any peanut butter/honey intended for the pine martens, and defiantly eat it all with glee.

One camera trap at a badger sett captured one of its dwellers – this is probably the first time the badger has ever had it’s photo taken.

The sett was very deep in the woodland and well away from any human trails or paths.

Our final highlight from July is this roe deer picture. She has framed herself perfectly, and if you look by her side, there are her two kids.

Bluebells on the forest floor add a dash of purple/blue. A great scene. More from the pine marten project camera traps soon!
