Snails and their trails

After rain over night the snails were out in force. They were climbing up trees all around the lake. Slugs were criss crossing the paths below.

It’s amazing the variety of colours and sizes of snails that are usually hidden away. Tomorrow if it is still damp I am going to count these molluscs , I’m sure it will be hundreds.

Some trees have snails all the way up their trunks as well as the unbellifers being full of snails, often smaller and paler.

I like to imagine the snail above is climbing for a better view of the river Nene !
