    This morning I check this peanut sized thing attached to my filter box. I turned away to make tea. A must in my morning and when I got back the thing had ducked.
    It sorta looks like a mollusc or sorts, seemed to be attached with foot or some kind.

    Anyone seen something like this.

    Pads - unfortunately the picture is slightly out of focus for me. Would you perhaps be able to get us a new (more clearer) pic?

    Many thanks.

    That was the best I could get out of my camera, trying to focus on macro mode through glass proves tricky. Plus I've spent the better part of 2 hrs today glued to the glass to get another spotting. I'll try again if I see it.
