They're rare and now they're famous; OUT AND ABOUT.

A SCULPTURE of a pine marten with her young kits has been erected to celebrate their revival in Wales Created by local artist Grace Young-Monaghan, the statue was unveiled by TV presenter Iolo Williams on Hafod Estate car park, near Devil's Bridge where martens have been reintroduced.

Shaped like a tree trunk, it is topped by an adult pine marten with two cheeky kits peeking out from a hole.

Once on the verge of extinction, a recovery project by the Vincent Wildlife Trust has seen 39 pine martens brought to the area from Scotland over the past two years.

Up to 20 more are being relocated this autumn.
