(TELEGRAPH) — Weird jelly-like substance found at the RSPB Ham Wall Nature reserve in Somerset in baffling staff.

The jelly-like substance has been found at the RSPB Ham Wall Nature reserve in Somerset. As yet the mystery slime has not been identified.

Steve Hughes, the RSPB site manager at Ham Wall, said: “This past week we’ve been finding piles of this translucent jelly dotted around the reserve.

“Always on grass banks away from the water’s edge. They are usually about 10cm (4in) in diameter. We’ve asked experts what it might be, but as yet no one is really sure. Whatever it is, it’s very weird.”
