A dormouse in a box made by my mothers late partner. The box is probably 15 years old and they are still being used.
We manage the grey squirrels in this wood to try to reduce the competition to the dormice. They are just hanging on in the wood.
Many have never seen a dormouse. They are probably my favourite native mammal, with their orange fur and big black eyes. They rely mainly on coppiced hazel to survive.
I love them!
