Another snail hunt!

You may remember that Monkey and I went on a snail hunt back in the summer. Well we’ve been in search of our little friends again.  We’ve been on another snail hunt!  This one took place on our recent trip to Otmoor Nature Reserve.

Another snail hunt

Monkey and I were both fascinated to see all the different coloured snail shells.  Monkey wanted to bring them all home, but I persuaded him that they were better off where they were!

We love our time tracking mini beasts – one of our favourite pastimes.  We’re off to Spain next week to spend some time with Guru Gramps.  Hopefully we’ll have some Spanish mini beasts to share with you in a couple of weeks, maybe we’ll go on another snail hunt!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Fabulous pictures Mary, I do love how different and how striking snail shells are and what a brilliant collection of different ones you got to see that day. Have a fab holiday, I’m not really jealous of your escape to the sun….much! 🙂

    1. Thanks, I was just amazed at the variety in one location. Really looking forward to the break, first proper once since last November. The rain tends to follow me to Spain but hopefully this time will be different!! Fingers crossed 🙂

  2. It’s not till you start looking that you realise how many different varieties of snails there are in our own back gardens. We did this a few years ago and I was amazed at the number in our garden. Enjoy your holiday in Spain.

  3. We love snails – even if they are bad for the plants! Their shells are so beautiful and I quite like their funny eye stalks too!

  4. Wow, what an amazing set of photos! Have a wonderful holiday, look forward to hearing about your Spanish mini-beast hunts 🙂

  5. Lovely pictures and I would never have noticed there were so many different varieties were it not for your collage. a wonderful expedition and I’m looking forward to lizards and bugs from Spain next week. Have a wonderful time!
