Dormice are a European Protected Species, making it illegal to intentionally or recklessly harm either them or their habitat.
In the UK as a whole the Dormouse population has been declining in recent years, with the South West being one of the last remaining strongholds.
Due to their secretive and nocturnal nature, establishing their presence or absence on a site can be a difficult task. At JL Ecology Ltd, we use a combination of methods including:
- Nut Searches
- Nest Searches
- Nest Tube Surveys
