Chest patch

The pine marten and beech or stone marten are sympatric in your region, but in the stone marten I think the pale chest patch goes right down over the top of the legs and is usually divided in the middle by darker fur.

Gill is right, this is a pine martin because the pale patch is on the throat only.
