Wildlife

Dormouse nestbox on Wenlock Edge

Dormouse nestbox project 

Over the last 100 years, dormouse populations in Britain have dramatically declined, mainly due to the loss and fragmentation of their habitat. This fall in numbers has led to this loveable creature to be protected nationally and internationally. Shropshire is considered to be a key county for dormice because it approaches their most north-westerly limit in Europe: here they are particularly vulnerable.
