***

This is Dormouse.

 

She’s just waking up from a long nap, having hibernated since October.

 

She’s one of only 3 mammals who hibernate in the Uk (along with Hedgehog and Bat).

 

She’s been sleeping on the ground where the temperature is more stable.

 

But she’s lucky, as a lot of dormice don’t survive their hibernation; badgers and wild boars can eat them when they sleep.

 

She’s just about to go looking for for blackberries - her favourite food, and they will go nicely with some flowers from oak, hawthorn, honeysuckle or brambles.

 

She may even eat some caterpillars if there are any around.

 

Poor Dormouse is in constant fear of removal (or inappropriate management) of the hedgerow she lives in. Her species might go extinct if this carries on.

 

But she hopes to live to the ripe old age of 5 years.

 

She has always wanted her portrait painted and is over the moon that you'd have print of her in your home.
