Surrey365; Day 70. Mollusc of the Year, 2012.

I discovered quite a few of these interesting little snails around the pond margins and bog garden. I’ve never seen anything like these in the garden before, and suddenly there’s lots of them. After a bit of research, I think they’re Oxyloma elegans; Slender Amber Snails, or Pfeiffer’s Amber Snails. According to my source here, they were crowned Mollusc of the Year in 2012. I don’t know why I find this so amusing, but I do.
