Snails pace

Things have certainly slowed down in the last week or so. A mix of cold weather, snow on the ground and other commitment have meant that I have fallen behind my schedule. It was somewhat fitting that my slow pace was picked up very slightly by a new sale.

Our garden mole has been busy underground of late, and around of the molehills I found a snail, presumably having been dislodged by the digging. I did not recognise as being a species I have identified this year, so I took it straight inside and referred to the key. It was a Brown-lipped Snail (Cepaea nemoralis), my fifth snail species of the year.
