During a recent "Bracken Bash" at the reserve, a Dormouse nest was discovered among one of the areas of bramble. Check out the photo of the nest. These delightful creatures are currently very much at risk on the site as there are no suitable wildlife corridors linking the reserve to other suitable habitats. The highly endangered Hazel Dormouse is very much an arboreal species and the presence of hedgerows, especially those with mixed fruits and nuts, is essential for them to spread and come into contact with other Dormouse communities. Can we manage the hedgerows better for the benefit of the Dormouse?
