The Dormouse population is in rapid decline due to habitat destruction including hedgerow and woodland removal and lack of appropriate habitat management.

  • Various survey methods are employed to detect the presence of this European Protected Species including nut searches (Dormice leave distinct tooth marks on eaten nuts) and nest tube checks.

  • Nest tube checks have to be carried out over several months (April to November), reflecting the life-cycle of the dormouse and usually requires the installation of artificial nest boxes or tubes in woodland and hedgerows

Please refer to our Ecology Survey Calendar for further information on Dormice and other protected species surveys.
