Hopwas woods.

On Monday I went on a walk to a local woods, Hopwas woods and I took my camera again. I was particularly looking for some more fungi but I also spotted some more interesting things. One of which was some strange boxes hanging from the trees. At first I had no idea but I put a picture on my twitter and people quickly identified them as boxes to record dormice! I got very excited as dormice are very cute but timid and difficult to see. I hope you enjoy this post.

These were the boxes to record any dormice. They walk into the box and there foot prints
will mark the clay inside.

This is a photo of a dormouse about to be weighed. As you can see
they are very cute and it would be very exciting if there was dormice
locally.
