    That is a great picture. One of the main reasons for dormice becoming so scarce is the reduction of coppicing in ancient woodland.

    Unfortunately deer can be a major problem with coppicing.

    fencing is one solution however it is often impractical or prohibitively expensive. Also complete exclusion of deer causes it’s own problems.

    My method of deer management kills no deer and does not cause suffering. It is simply mad to ban me from flushing out deer in a non lethal manner unless I then shoot them.
