A Hydrozoan on Holme NWT beach, 31st December 2014 - Ive not seen this before and its very distinctive - looks juts like bottle-brush hydrozoan but well out of range and the micro-stucture doesn't fit. So for now, I', stumped.

Eristalis tenax - a group of 6 overflies hibernating with Peacock Butterflies in one of the 'top secret' bunkers, Holme NWT, 31st December 2014

Porcellio scaber, the common dune woodlouse, Holme NWT, 31st December 2014
