7th July - How to Survey for Hazel Dormice: Footprint Tunnels, Tubes and Boxes

  • Sale
  • Regular price £50.00


Sunday 7th July

10.00am - 4.30pm             

Tutor: Simone Bullion


Dormice can sometimes be hard to detect so using a range of different survey methods can be beneficial. This course aims to demonstrate the range of techniques through a combination of indoor and field based sessions. As well as checking nest boxes and nest tubes, for which a survey licence is required, we will also spend time practicing the new technique of footprint tunnels and how to recognise evidence of dormice.  The use of trail cameras will also be covered, as well as how to search for natural nests and nibbled hazel nuts in autumn.  This course is aimed at consultants, but also suitable for anyone interested in the ecology of dormice who wants to know more about how to survey for them.
