Muscardinus avellanarius ~ common or hazel dormouse

Thank you to everyone who viewed and commented on yesterday's 'Face'.
We were clearing some scrub from a wild part of the garden and must have disturbed this little fellow's nest.
Fortunately, dormice hibernate until late April so hopefully he (?) was already awake.
He appeared quite happy to sit on my hand for several minutes and then disappeared into the undergrowth.
