Dormice active in East Devon

Dormice Active in East Devon

We found our first dormouse of 2018 in a survey tube today in East Devon. This confirms that dormice are beginning to emerge from hibernation nests, which are built at ground level under cover such as leaves. Survey tubes are located in hedgerows and scrub and are usually deployed in March/April and checked throughout the summer and autumn for presence of nesting dormice.
