More news, no ads


CAMERAS set up to follow the New Forest's newly introduced pine marten have captured a raft of wildlife footage over the past 12 months.

Thirty remote trail cameras were set up for the New Forest Pine Marten Project by Wild New Forest, which has now unveiled a highlights reel of the season.

The video includes footage of pine martens on the Forest floor, including a clip showing an adult moving young kits between den sites.

It also features a variety of other wildlife recorded on camera, including goshawks chasing grey squirrels, a buzzard eating a bank vole, and entertaining views of mammals including badgers, foxes and several species of deer.

The New Forest Pine Marten Project is a collaboration between Wild New Forest, Forestry England, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and New Forest Badger Group.

The work is set to continue thanks to additional cash provided by the New Forest Trust as part of their Love the Forest programme. This will allow the team to look into DNA analysis of pine marten scats to help determine the number of individuals.
