A dormouse motorway has been created by Suffolk Wildlife Trust with help from BT staff and land owners near its Bradfield Woods national nature reserve.

The trust wanted to plant 6,000 saplings to create two new hedgerows and fill a gap in an existing one to connect Bradfield and Bulls Woods for the mice which dislike travelling on the ground.

Trust staff were joined last Friday by 65 BT staff and Andrew and Elaine Mason, whose land the hedgerows cross. The hedging plants, which include hazel, blackthorn. dogwood, hawthorn and oak, were supplied by a local nursery and funded by the SITA Trust.

Michael Strand, development manager at Suffolk Wildlife Trust, said: “It’s a great illustration of a Living Landscape in creation; a corridor for wildlife that will reconnect the historic boundary of Bradfield Woods National Nature Reserve and it will benefit many species.”
