There's a *theory* kicking about that greys don't establish wherever there's pine martens about because they're easier prey than the reds. Interesting idea, but difficult to prove in practice.
That doesn't really make sense because the martens would just move into the area with 'easier' prey, given no barrier.

Now Pine martins are a lot rarer. Only ever seen one and that was up at Rothiemurchas.
I am fairly certain I saw one near the beach in Swansea. I had a very good view of it. The only reason that I'm not 100% certain is that we are not supposed to have pine martens here....
