Survey hazel dormice
Dormouse licence return data entry
If you have a Natural England dormouse licence, please submit your annual return here. Please note that if the data are for an NDMP site then the more detailed data also needs to be submitted to the NDMP, however only one licence holder per site needs to do this.
National Dormouse Monitoring Programme (NDMP) data entry
This area is for licensed dormouse monitors who check dormouse nest boxes to enter their records onto the National Dormouse Monitoring Programme (NDMP). There is more information on the NDMP on our website.
National Dormouse Database (NDD) data entry
If you have seen a hazel dormouse, found a dormouse nest or a dormouse chewed nut please record it here. This will help us increase our knowledge of the distribution and abundance of these rare mammals in England and Wales. Thank you.
National Dormouse Footprint Tunnel Survey data entry
The National Dormouse Footprint Tunnel Survey will be based on a search for dormice in hedgerows rather than any other habitat. Footprint tunnels are relatively easy to use and can be used by people who do not have a dormouse licence.
Footprint tunnel survey data entry
If you have completed a dormouse survey using the footprint tunnel methodology please enter the information here. Please note negative results are as important as positive results.
Nest tube and box survey (NOT NDMP) data entry
If you have completed a dormouse survey, or short term nest box monitoring, please enter the information here. Please note, negative results are as important as positive results.
Submitting dead dormice to ZSL
If you have a Natural England dormouse licence, you are required to report dead dormice as part of your licence return. If possible, the carcasses should be submitted to ZSL for post mortem using this form.
