Dormouse Surveys

Dormice are fully protected under UK and European law and consequently it is an offence to kill, capture, or disturb them, or to damage their habitats.

Dormouse Surveys from Leigh Ecology

Dormouse surveys can be time consuming, as nest box and tube surveys can take up to six months to complete from March to October. Nut searches can be undertaken throughout the year but produce the most reliable results between September and November.

Our licensed dormouse specialists are experienced in survey, European Protected Species licensing, as well as mitigation design and implementation.

Whether you simply require an assessment of a woodland or hedgerow for potential impacts of development, assessment of a tree or hedge for potential dormouse issues, a full and detailed survey for dormice, or advice on suitable mitigation proposals, we can help you, anywhere in England and Wales.
