Telegraph Paper Logo Invalid or Broken rss link.


The Dormice site is dedicated to that most wonderful creature the Hazel Dormouse. The site contains information about the Hazel Dormouse, a download section for publications, videos and news.

We hope you find this site useful, please check back often as t content of this site will be updated with new information as soon as it is found.

It would be fantastic if you would like to contribute to the website with your own news and information and perhaps images, please use this link to send an email to the author of this site.

I am still refining some of the pages for this site, so some of the pages are just notes, if you would like to correct the information, donate new information that would be great. A small note on images, the site lacks images, so far I have two sources, the Forestry Commission and free to use images. If your picture is on here without permission – SORRY, please can I use it? Please! The site is not for profit, anything over my costs will be sent to Suffolk Wildlife Trust, so please may I use your image? If you would like to donate images I will of course add the correct accreditation to each and a link back to your site. Thanks, Neil.
