The Hazel Nest
'The Hazel Nest' is part of the 'Home' series. I created this series to capture the feeling of comfort and safety you experience when you’re in your home. I imagined the animals experiencing the same feeling when they get back into their dens, warrens or nests.
The two tiny Hazel dormouse are sleeping the winter away. Dormice rarely travel more than 200ft from their nest. The Hazel Dormouse is the only dormouse native to the British Isle.
