Laura - when you join meeting you are asked if you want to join with audio. You might have to re-join...
Red Squirrels Trust Wales
33:52
Yes you need to join using computer audio or telephone
Keith Robertson

You need a better camera and some lights would be good!!

Any evidence of pine martens spreading into England?
Red Squirrels Trust Wales
58:54
Another reintroduction project is taking place in the Forest of Dene but there is also recent evidence of them migrating into Cumbria and Northumberland

What are the other diseases that grey squirrels carry which might harm reds?
Jay Doyle
59:45
A small population exists in the New Forest
Rob Lucas
01:00:17
Also sightings in Shropshire from the Wales VWT reintroductions
Gwen Maggs
01:00:48
Two were spotted on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall!
Red Squirrels Trust Wales

Squirrelpox and Adenovirus are the main diseases that threaten red squirrels carried by greys. But reds can also carry adenovirus independently of interaction with greys I believe
Nick Dunning
01:01:59
New Forest? That's interesting! Come from where? Or a remnant pop?
Red Squirrels Trust Wales
01:02:23
Well done Jack :-)
Jay Doyle
01:03:13
NF population identified by camera trap but origins unknown

If you have any questions for Craig that you would like to put in the chat, feel free to add them :-)

As seen with the Wild Boar in the Forest of Dean, continuous feeding of Wild Animals can affect their behaviour and feeding patterns. Do you think that continuous feeding of Pine Martens will result in them becoming too reliant on the food we put out and therefore affect their willingness/need to to predate their normal prey. Do you think that using scent lures could be an optional alternative to food whilst still retaining the ability to monitor their presence.
Red Squirrels Trust Wales
01:20:40
Thanks Paul - I will put that to Craig when he concludes his talk
Paul Harry
01:21:01
Is there an estimate of the numbers (population density) of Pine Martens required to start making a difference in Grey Squirrel number reduction.
Red Squirrels Trust Wales
01:21:13
I will ask him that too :-)
Nick Dunning
01:24:25
I'm looking for a MSc dissertation topic right now. Captive Pine marten diet would be really interesting! Would love to do it!
Jay Doyle
01:25:21
Thank you Craig and RSTW, a fascinating presentation and an exciting time for pine marten recovery
Gwen Maggs
01:25:42
A question - what public engagement has been done around the reintroduction and how do you plan to tackle human-wildlife conflict as the populations establish?
Stephen Trotter
01:26:12
Fantastic talk - thanks ever so much Craig and RSTW
Kat Webb
01:26:24
Do pine martens usually vary their nesting sites so frequently once established in an area?
Simon Ayres
01:28:03
Will you be studying the squirrel response in your release area?
Janet Watkin
01:30:52
Thank you Craig, excellent presentation.
Nick Dunning
01:31:06
What do we do about grey squirrels in urban areas where pine martens aren't?
Ian Townsend
01:32:35
Cracking talk Craig! Thanks a lot
Jack Bamber
01:33:02
Has there been any return to there original release enclosures?
Laura Gardner
01:33:36
This is great - will the recording be made available?
Red Squirrels Trust Wales
01:34:06
Hi Laura, yes it will - I'll post it on the YouTube channel and then share it via the RSTW facebook page etc
Laura Gardner
01:34:29
Brilliant thank you
Cheryl Lickiss

Is there a plan to release pine martens in Northumberland/Scottish Borders?
