About this book

When Les and Chris Humphreys moved to Ardnamurchan in the Scottish Highlands, little did they realize they would be sharing their retirement with some of Britain's most elusive mustelids. Amongst all the animals and birds that visit their garden, they have formed a special bond with numerous pine martens and have been able to study them at close range through direct observation and via sensor-operated cameras. Polly Pullar has known the Humphreys and their pine marten neighbours for many years. In this anecdotal, amusing and informative book she weaves together natural history, revealing much of the life of one of Scotland's richest habitats – the oakwoods of the Atlantic seaboard -- with evidence from the Humphreys' intimate observations to produce a unique picture of this inquisitive, playful and resourceful animal with an almost limitless appetite for mischief.
