User's notes

Rose petal bubble snail in a rockpool surrounded by ash and larger debris from the fires. The bottom of this rockpool was covered in black burnt plant material rendering it difficult for the snail to crawl. We sat watching this little one take a particularly long time to 'work out' where it was going.
