Hazel Dormouse

Our suitably experienced and licensed ecologists are able to undertake:

b) Presence / Likely Absence Surveys.

a) Habitat Suitability Assessment

A visual assessment to determine the level of habitat suitability and connectivity.

b) Presence / Likely Absence Surveys

The installation of nest tubes within suitable dormouse habitat to determine presence / likely absence. Nest tubes are checked for signs of dormouse activity monthly between April and November (as required).

Searches for hazelnuts opened by dormice are also undertaken during autumn / winter.
