I say no to the bridge!
We all ready have plenty of doormice in England and the last thing
we need is a bunch of Welsh ones coming over here so they can sleep around
with our females and then run off back to The Valleys with their tail between their legs.

The toads got their underpasses, right? Still, in the realm of public works $190K (or was it pounds?) is a pretty cheap bridge.

my first time on one of these forums.

what happens to these dormice as they exit this bridge. have the planners considered that once an owl or such bird gets wind of this constant food supply, they could decimate the dormouse population faster than any car could squish them. i think they are better off taking there chances crossing the road, would save us £199,000 to boot.

I’m surprised to see that some of our anti – EU posters, have not yet commentated on the fact that this bridge was erected to comply with the EU Habitats Directive.

How do you know the dormice are Welsh? They could easily be English dormice, returning home after finding their holiday nests have been burned to the ground by the Friends of the Welsh Dormice.

It was the Welsh ‘who done it’.

This thought struck me as well. It’s a fast food outlet for owls, other birds and cats.

On looking further I came upon this -

Make a mental note - buy shares in the company providing these bridges.
