Stumptail the dormouse lived 15 years ago in the Croes Robert Nature reserve outside Trellech. Keith Allen has a handling licence and a photography licence, and was able to follow this one dormouse almost from birth, when he lost half his tail and thus became recognisable, to his death, with some stills and a unique video.
Keith will also bring some artifacts – a nest, nuts, and a couple of imitation animals in needlefelting as most people have never seen one.
The photo is of an entire dormouse, with all of its tail!
Free to all Monmouth u3a members.
Come alone or bring a friend, stay for a chat over tea and biscuits afterwards.
Some group activities and meetings are held at Ty Price, St Thomas Community Hall, St Thomas’s Square. There is no off street parking here. The approach on foot is a gentle slope to double entrance doors. The ground floor of the building is fully accessible and there is a disabled toilet. The stairs to the first floor are wide and well-lit with a handrail on both sides, but there is no lift. There is a hearing induction system on the ground floor.
