awwww... Thanks Cher!

TWO baby pine martens who were separated after they fell from the same nest in the north-east have been reunited.

Staff at the Scottish SPCA wildlife rescue centre at Fife have named the female Aspen and her brother Ash.

Aspen tumbled out of their nest in a chimney top at Banff at the end of May and Ash suffered the same fate a month later.

Ash was originally taken to an SPCA rescue centre at New Deer but was later transferred to the Fife centre.

Centre manager Colin Seddon said: “We have reunited the pair and they have been getting on very well together.

“We were fairly confident about putting them together, given that they are brother and sister, but occasionally when you introduce one animal to another, there can be a bit of a stand-off.”

The two animals are being kept in a small enclosure at the moment but centre staff are preparing to move them to an outdoor space where they will have more room to move around and climb.

Mr Seddon said: “Once they are fully developed, we will find a suitable location to release them back to their natural native habitat.”
