I had a walk around a large water that i plan on joining this weekend and as i usually do i was poking around in the margins seeing what lives there and what the fish maybe feeding on. I found the usual water fleas, shrimps and small worms in and around the marginal weed as well as quite a few mussels, but on entering one 'swim' i found quite a few large water snails in the shallows moving towards a small clump of reeds. I only took the one picture but wish i took more now, maybe even a short video, as i,ve not seen a 'clump' of large snails like this before and they all looked on a mission. I,m guessing they were on their way to lay eggs on the nearby reeds. They were big too, between 1"-2" shells.
