I had to go to Sutton this morning for a photo shoot.

As I left the Staithe and went down stream, about 100 yards from the end of the quay heading on my right were, as normal, a number of lilypads and some roots floating very close to the bank.

As I looked at these I hade to have a second look as I could not belive what I was looking at.

I turned the boat around  and took this picture of - YES a TURTLE !

It was sitting there taking in the warmth of the sun.

I tried to get another picture but it shot very fast into the water, I followed some bubbles and I think it had its head out of the water for a few moments then went under and I could just see the shape of it as it came towards by boat then disappeared..
It was about 12" dia. but I have no idea what type is is.

I hung around for a while but never saw it again.

Thanks for the info guys.

They are I think deemed to be a pest, more importantly they can give a nasty bite which is likely to turn septic so have a care.  Scared

When I saw the title of the thread I thought that Paul had either caught certain forum members (Dibbs, ZTD, Jag etc) or someone had captured a piccy of himself in a saily.

How disappointing to find a water borne Tortoise LOL

Nice pic though Paul. Aint it a shame that your job takes you onto the water so much LOL
