Just watching a programme on TV where they divided a garden into 4 quads, gathered up all the snails from each area and coloured their shells a colour
for each quad.
They were then released and almost all of them when checked the next night were in the 'right' quad.
Apparently about 25m is the limit so if you collect snails from your garden - you need to go for a short walk to the nearest park/roadside/scrub area
and leave them there.
If you want to read more just search 'snail homing instinct' and there's plenty of articles about it.
I'll be taking a bucket load to the woods later today
