BRECKNOCK Wildlife Trust is appealing for volunteers to take part in the Great Nut Hunt - a nationwide survey of the rare dormouse.

The trust's mammal specialist Phil Morgan said, "It is a question of finding hazel nuts in woodlands and hedgerows.

Dormice open hazel nuts in a very distinctive way, which results in a very neat hole in the shell with telltale teeth marks.

"If anyone picks up hazel nut shells they can bring them to the trust office in Lion House, Bethel Square, Brecon, to have them checked over for evidence of dormice."

Information packs about the Great Nut Hunt are available from the trust office in Brecon.
