Animals from the deeps

Last Tuesday's storm brought ashore some interesting bits and pieces.........

Sea Beard, Nemertesia antennina, Hunstanton, 10th February 2014 (although this photo dates from February, there were plenty around on 6th December)

The soft coral, Alcyonium digitatum, Holme NWT, 6th December 2014: another hydrozoan which littered the beach after the storms

Whiteweed, Sertularia cupressina, Holme NWT, 6th December 2014: a delicate hydrozoan washed ashore in masses but which also grows from sand on the low shore and in rock pools

Cuttlefish (well, at least the cuttlebone), Sepia officials, Holme NWT, 6th December 2014
