The dormouse is one of the least seen but most loved of British animals. Dormice have always been portrayed as elusive, rare animals with specialised food requirements found only in large ancient woodlands.
Sue Eden was therefore surprised to find them nesting in the coastal scrub of her new garden. Her many years of ensuing research have led her to the conclusion that the dormouse is in reality a widespread, tough, opportunistic omnivore that appears just as at home in low coastal scrub and conifer plantations.
This fascinating new research, together with many colour photographs, provides an inspiration in the search for this appealing creature.
