A12 dormouse habitat improvements

Updated: May 4, 2019


The one that got away!

This year we are hoping to get some improvements to habitat along the A12 after we found dormice living on the road verge. It is extraordinary that they can be nesting just metres away from the thunderous noise of the traffic but they do appear to be thriving. The key to their survival is dense undergrowth, a mix of foodstuffs and good connectivity with the surrounding countryside.
