Hazel Dormouse

The dormouse lives in dense, deciduous woodland, coppice and thick shrubbery. Hazel coppice is a preferred habitat and the dormouse builds spherical nests of grass and honeysuckle bark situated a few feet from the ground. Here it spends the greater part of the day before emerging after dark to forage high in the canopy.

SIte update

Just a quick note to mention that my photography site, www.benlocke.co.uk has undergone a redesign to improve navigation, amongst other things.

Otters


These two Otters were photographed last weekend on the River Stour. In all three Otters were seen - a mother and her two kits. At times the youngsters waited on land while she made repeated trips to catch food for them with amazing efficiency.
