Dormice in unusual habitats

In 2010 staff from Bramley Associates set out some 500 dormouse nesting tubes in 10 areas of 'non-typical' dormouse habitat in Kent.

In 2011 of these 10 sites surveyed, dormouse activity was noted within disused apple orchards near Canterbury, in gorse hedgelines alongside the A2 and in parkland areas near Sandwich.

This project has now finished and the findings suppport results from elsewhere in the UK where it is now widely recognised that dormouse live in a wide range of habitat types. This Kent based survey was the first attempt in SE England to ascertain the range of habitats this may include in this area.
