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.

they are very cute and it would be very exciting if there was dormice
