Managing Woodland for Dormice

 

This is a very informative leaflet about how woodland can be managed for biodiversity with Dormice in mind.

 

In Victorian times dormice were widespread throughout England and Wales and even today there are isolated populations as far north as the Lake District and Northumberland.

 

However, due to habitat fragmentation

they have become locally extinct in most of the midland and northern counties and are now generally

restricted to parts of Wales and southern England, where they are still considered to be in decline.
