About the event

We can't guarantee that we will find dormice in the boxes we check, but there will be a high chance of a sighting and, participants will also learn survey and handling techniques for other small mammals. The day will be led by Herefordshire Wildlife Trust's James Hitchcock who is a licensed dormouse handler.
