I came across my first dormouse in January, in St Lawrence on the Isle of Wight. I was clearing up a heap of weeds that I had left lying around since before Xmas and there in the middle was a sleepy little fellow. Wasn't really sure what to do with him, so after a brief woman to mouse chat, telling him what a cute creature he was, I carefully placed the old weeds on top of him and decided to go and work on another part of the garden! Am not sure if he's still there, but have made a note to self not to leave piles of weeds lying around for too long!!
