Thanks for these pictures it does look like a dormouse nest. Do you know how healthy the population is on the LNR?

yes definitely a Dormouse nest, it contained two fast asleep (new photo) which we didn't have the heart to disturb to weigh etc so we put it back.
The Dormouse population is healthy. This is our third year of surveying. Last May we found 6 this May 12 our best month last year was October when we found 31 in our 52 boxes. The Dormouse section with data digests for Howardian LNR are here http://www.howardianlnr.org.uk/datadigest10.html
