A recent survey of nesting boxes at the wetland reserve found four live dormice and 8 dormice nests inside the 61 nesting boxes onsite.
Two of the dormice found were nesting in boxes on the edges of the recently completed Arun Riverlife project.
WWT Arundel Wetland Centre Manager Dave Fairlamb said: “It’s great news that wildlife like dormice are moving back into the revitalized habitats of the Arun Riverlife project so quickly after the project was finished last June.”
