2018 Dormouse Reintroductions

Following on from the previous reintroduction, 38 dormice were released onto another site within the scheme area in a hope to improve their dispersal across not only the living landscape area, but also with time, the county.

Continued surveying of the species during the 2019 season has revealed that the species is breeding as unchipped young have been found in nest boxes.

Numbers are however still below expectation.
