Dormice

This autumn I’ve been helping out some friends with dormice surveys in a local woodland.  Due to the fact that the autumn and early winter have been so warm many dormice have still been (hyper)active and therefore, unphotographable (is that even a word?)

However, the last visit of the season turned up two dormice in the boxes erected for them to nest in and both were fast asleep.  Here’s a few pics of them… adorable!
