Dormouse and Field Vole Surveys

Field Vole

The Sussex Mammal Group is looking for volunteers to join in with the following two surveys:

  • Sussex Dormouse Nut Hunt (the best time of year for this survey is autumn and winter)
  • Sussex Field Vole Survey (the best time of year for this survey is spring through to autumn)

If you would like to be involved your help would be greatly appreciated. You can download the survey methods/recording sheets for both surveys here on our website:

If you would like to participate in the Dormouse Nut Hunt please get in contact with Penny Green and she can supply details of the grid references and names of woods that need surveying. This will be provided as a list from which you can choose as many sites as you have time to do.

And, as always, the Longworth traps are available for use so please get in contact to book them out.

We look forward to hearing back from you soon.

To contact Penny, either send a message directly, or write or phone.
