Low Tide Rockpooling - South Landing, 20th Feb 2019

Montagu's Sea Snail (no you're right, it is a fish, just with a stupid name)
 
Happy to hook up with our friends the Taylor clan over from West Yorkshire for half-term, and a quick check of the tide tables meant only one thing for this morning - rockpooling at South Landing: a low, low tide, barely anyone else around and so many beasts to uncover and enjoy.

The best - a huge Shanny that performed perfectly for us

Common Grey Sea Slug
 
Sea Hare
