Please come along to what will be a fun evening and a chance to have a catch up; feel free to bring partners or friends, the more the merrier! The cost is £12 per person.

Please email Alex if you would like to book a place (full details and timings will be sent out nearer the date.) It would be great to see you all there!

Here is information on the conservation status of hazel dormouse:

Conservation Status

IUCN status was revised in 2009: M. avellanarius is now ‘of least concern’, whereas previously it was ‘low risk (near threatened)’. This change is predominantly due to the observation that in Lithuania it is a common and widespread species, and no decline has been observed.  In parts of its northern range (e.g., UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Denmark) populations are declining and fragmented as a result of habitat loss and fragmentation.
