Living with Dormice: The Common Dormouse: Real Rodent of Phantom of the Ancient Wood
The dormouse is one of the least seen but most loved of British animals. Much has been written about dormice in the past few years, but they have always been portrayed as rare animals with specialised food requirements found only in large ancient woodlands. The author was therefore surprised to find them nesting in the coastal scrub of her new garden. Her research has led her to the conclusion that dormice are not specialist animals restricted to specific habitats and are widespread in England in all arboreal habitats.
