TEST VALLEY DORMOUSE PROJECT

TEST VALLEY DORMOUSE PROJECT

We’re working with the Woodland Trust, Test Valley Borough Council and farmers in the northern Test Valley in Hampshire on a project to improve habitat connectivity for the elusive hazel dormouse.  


This tiny mammal is a low-profile and low density occupant of habitats that represent key elements of the traditional lowland farmed landscape: hedgerows, hazel coppice and mixed deciduous woodland.

Nearly 1,000 farmers took part in the 2016 BFBC. Click here to find out how you can take part this year.

Jim Egan, Head of Development and Training at the GWCT Allerton Project explains why conducting the count is so important:

“Farmers and gamekeepers are vital in helping to ensure the future survival of many of our most cherished farmland bird species such as skylark, yellowhammer, corn buntings and wild grey partridges. They are responsible for managing the largest songbird habitat in this country on their land but frequently their efforts to reverse bird declines are largely unrecorded. We believe our Big Farmland Bird Count will help remedy this, particularly as our earlier pilot count showed such encouraging results. ”
