Dahlia Anemone

This is the incredible Dahlia Anemone Urticina felina and was the star of the show at this evening's Shoresearch event at Saltdean. We saw quite a few crustaceans and anemones but this was one that I really wanted to see, it was much bigger than I was expecting. It was quite a good Spring tide and right out near the water's edge I actually saw a few White Piddocks Barnea candida burrowing into the chalk! I love that this is going on just a few miles from my house in Brighton.
