Dormouse Project
Dormouse Excellent First Indications from National Dormouse Nest Box Scheme The first set of results from our National Dormouse Monitoring Scheme are nowavailable and I’m delighted to say that the results are very encouraging. A total of fifty boxes were put up over the summer and have just been revisited by our own licensed handler Alison. A total of six nests were present and one was complete with four very active dormice.This is particularly encouraging as some of the boxes were put up quite late in the summer. Another pleasing sign is that the nests were nicely dispersed along the transect .

Another pleasing sign is that the nests were nicely dispersed along the transect so prospects look very good for 2013. It is hoped that we can complete some additional habitat improvement over the winter in areas alongside the existing territories.
