One of the nicest things about the beach is that it changes all the time and every tide brings new things to see.
Last year, for the first time, I found a jelly blob. Clearly “jelly blob” is not the proper
term for it, but it does describe what it was like. A small (about 2cm across) blob of
clear jelly with jade coloured strands in it. I found out, via the Natural History Museum‘s
website, that it was actually an egg mass of the green leaf worm (Eulalia viridis). I have
kept looking, but so far I haven’t seen the adult worms.
At the other extreme, was this Lion’s Mane jellyfish that washed up on Traeth Penrhos. Funnily enough, another name for this is sea blubber.
