The Hampshire Dormouse Group is planning on trialling the dormouse tracking tunnels that they have had a lot of success with in Switzerland, but each tracking tunnel requires three orange juice or milk juice cartons so we will need a few of those.
We would be grateful if you could save any that you get so that we can start building some of these tunnels.
Details to follow of how and when we plan to put these together and put them up.
The Hampshire Dormouse Group dormouse ecology training course was held over two evenings on the 2nd and 3rd March 2015. Topics covered included dormouse ecology and physiology, conservation, survey methods, historical landscape ecology, habitat appraisal, legislation and habitat management.
Over 20 HDG members and non-members attended, however the course proved more popular than was anticipated with a waiting list. As a result the course will be run again during late 2015 – look out for details on the website and blog.
We have updated our events list for 2015. We hope to see you at the events below. More details will be posted prior to the events.
Saturday 7 March – HBIC Recorders Forum
Saturday 28 March – Hampshire Ornithological Society Open Day
Saturday 30 May – Fleet Pond Wildlife Day
Saturday 5 September – Zionshill Copse Community Woodfair
I can now confirm that the Hampshire Dormouse Group 2015 training event will take place over two evenings on the 2nd and 3rd of March between 5:30pm and 8:30pm. The course will be a workshop format and cover the following topics over the two evenings: dormouse ecology, legislation and conservation, survey methods, habitat management and training for a dormouse licence.
The venue will be the EPR offices in Micheldever (thank you again to EPR for hosting!).
A copy of the programme will follow. The course is open to both HDG members and non-members.
There will be a nominal charge of £15 for HDG members and £20 for non-members which will go to the HDG to fund future dormouse activities.
Please e-mail me to confirm a place if you would like to attend.
