Dormice

The population of Dormice in GDT nest boxes is monitored each year and in 2017 a total of 24 Dormice were found.  This is a great result.  We plan to replace many of the older nest boxes and are also coppicing areas of hazel on the reserves to encourage more growth for more dormice.

Here are a few photos of the Dormice found in 2017.  You have to love these cute little mice.
