September is a good month for dormice in Cornwall
September is a good month for dormice in Cornwall. At this time of year they are busy fattening-up ahead of their long winter hibernation. The dormouse is a nocturnal species, spending most of its waking hours climbing among tree branches in search of food; fruit, insects, nuts, flowers and pollen. This beautiful mouse is just one of the species of wildlife that thrive in the woodlands and coastal areas.
