8:22 a marten came into the nest! (Crissy, sova, Liz01! Thanks for the wonderful photos and videos!)
Last year, Tiiu one night drove someone away from the nest when there were already eggs. Maybe then it was a marten?

Is the Marten at the nest this morning a -
Martes martes/Pine Marten - OR is it a - Martes foina/Stone Marten?....
brown nose.. a pine marten
The stone marten's throat is usually colored white and forked.
It's maroon and more round at the the pine marten.
However, there are coloring variants for both types, so that a reliable differentiation is not possible if you have not good pictures.
The nose- mirror is pink on the stone marten, and brown on the pine marten.
