What to see on an Easter Rock Pool Ramble
The plants and animals that make rock pools their home are both fascinating and amongst the hardiest creatures on the planet. After surviving the winter gales and low temperatures, the rock pool community now has to cope with increased exposure to sunlight and warming waters.
This brings new growth and new visitors to these hidden worlds, including nursehound sharks who begin laying their egg cases (mermaid’s purses) in the shallow waters between Hannafore beach and Looe Island.
As spring arrives and we dip our toes back into the sea (watch out for sharks!) there is an underwater world teeming with molluscs, shrimps and crabs, fish and anemones waiting to be explored.
