What to See on our October Half-Term Rock Pool Ramble
Autumn is a great season for rock poolers because the tides go out further. This lower shore environment is full of creatures we normally wouldn’t be able to find. Weird and wonderful sea slugs such as sea lemons and sea hares as well as the vibrant blue rayed limpets can be found in and around the exposed kelp forests. The eagle-eyed rock pooler can also find the worm pipefish, a relative of the seahorse, perfectly camouflaged amongst the brown seaweeds.
