The adults and children who joined our licence holders on the Sleepy Dormouse Hunt on Saturday all had the chance to see these wonderful animals close-up. The looks on the children's faces as they cradled a sleepy dormouse in their hands was something special. The event coincided with our monthly dormouse nestbox check during which we found a total of 11 animals. That's a good result for May and we hope it's a sign we are going to have a good dormouse year.
