Rush snails

As well as he little Coleophora  moths I wrote20081104 BHW Cpt 3ca snail on Juncus inflexus about yesterday, there are often small snails that, in mild, damp weather, climb up taller stalks in search of food, often eating flowers or seeds from extraordinarily precarious positions.

The mollusc on the right is, I think, a baby garden snail photographed in  the Old Wood Yard as it climbed a soft rush plant.
