These tiny 'towers' with multiple holes at their upper end were seen in standing water on peat moor. They remind me of the minute pinkish worms' dwellings found in muddy ponds in S England; (worms which would disappear into their mud as soon as our footfalls were sensed).

    Likely ID
    freshwater worm?
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
