We are working in partnership with Test Valley Borough Council, Woodland Trust and Peoples Trust for Endangered Species on a project which will further our knowledge of dormice in the northern Test Valley area.
The project will work alongside local land owners to assess habitat and carry out nut hunts to determine dormouse presence and suitability. The aim is then to work with land owners to adopt dormouse friendly management techniques and to improve linkages through hedgerow planting and restoration.
We will be carrying out nut hunts in some of these woodlands throughout September and we need your help. If you would like to be involved or even just help to improve your identification skills please do let us know using our contact page.
