Zusammenfassung: Records of pine martens in Northern Ireland spanning 150 years were collated and 57 forests were surveyed for scats in 2004. Pine martens were historically more widely distributed than at present. Pine marten scats were found at 11 (19%) sites in Fermanagh, Tyrone, Antrim and Down. At a further 9 (15%) sites, morphologically similar fox and stoat scats were found, while the remaining 38 (66%) sites contained no scats attributed to martens. The forests of Fermanagh and Tyrone remain strongholds, but anecdotal evidence suggests the species is still present in other localities where scats were not found.
