Essex Wildlife Trust staff and volunteers are helping monitor two Essex sites for dormice as part of a project spanning 20 sites in Suffolk and Essex. The first checks have taken place this month, and the survey will continue throughout 2016.

The 5th annual Essex Wildlife Trust Volunteer Open Day was well attended despite the distinctly wintry weather outside! Over 60 potential and existing volunteers braved the sleet to attend, and signed up for a range of survey opportunities, from winter work parties to advisory roles and practical survey work. Thank you to everybody who attended, we will be contacting you over the next few weeks to follow up on the event.
