Pine Marten Babies - the saga continues

Our Pine Marten is female. She was taking food for babies. Now she has brought them to the garden to feed for themselves. And they're not infants any longer!

One is as big as the female and only distinguishable by playful, inquisitive behaviour. I imagine this is the young male. The other is equally inquisitive but considerable smaller, so I imagine this is the female.

They are developing a comedy routine. Watching three of them try to squeeze onto one bird table is hilarious, involving lots of comedy slides down the post and tumbles onto the ground. They're every bit as entertaining as the badgers on Springwatch.

I have shot some video, which I'll edit soon and post of the web. In the meantime here's a slideshow with eighteen images.
