We have evidence of Dormice (Muscardinus avellanarius) recorded in at least three of the LAPWG parishes. Magnified view of hazel nutshell

Evidence has been provided by Hazel nut shells that show the characteristic holes left when the kernels have been extracted by Dormice.

Cat kills have provided sad but valuable records and there have been live sightings, (one in a garden), in two parishes during 2007.

We hope that records can be increased by the use of nest tubes, set out in suitable habitat such as woodlandDormouse on a CWT reserve edges and hedgerows. These will be checked for nests at intervals during the year.
