Dormouse Nest Box

Carefully created for the needs of the Dormouse with an entrance hole on the back.

In Herefordshire we have a local woodland that offers wildlife walks accompanied by a representative from our Small Mammals Society in the summer. Boxes, placed against the trunks of trees which are wrapped in honeysuckle and dog rose, are investigated to see if they harbour small mammals and, sure enough, dormice are often discovered. You can encourage these tiny, elusive animals by providing shelter for them.
Dormouse Nester


• Fix the nester to the trunk of a tree, on the side that is protected from prevailing winds.


• Position the entrance hole facing towards to the trunk. The dormouse can squeeze in, predators can’t.


• Put up 2.5 to 3 metres above ground level, to further deter predators.


• Resist the temptation to look inside. The dormouse is particularly shy and doesn’t like to be disturbed.
