An adorable hazel dormouse, a small rodent that hibernates for long periods, was captured snoring in the video titled Snoring Dormouse posted by thamesditton46. The video was shot by The Surrey Wildlife Trust Mammal Project Officer, Dave Williams, as part of The Surrey Dormouse project based in England. The Surrey Wildlife Trust is taking donations to help fund this project and others.
Surrey Wildlife Trust actively monitors dormice in 22 woodlands around Surrey. Mammal officer Dave Williams and a group of volunteers and ecologists monitor these sites on certain days each month from April to October. The monitoring teams carefully check 25 – 50 boxes in each woodland to look for dormice; each box and any contents (including species other than dormice!) are recorded.
