Goose Barnacles?

Observed: 18th August 2010 By: ruanaichruanaich’s reputation in Invertebratesruanaich’s reputation in Invertebrates
Bouy Barnacles (originally thought they were Goose Barnacles)

Not sure what these were at all. Strolling along shore I tapped them with my foot only to be surprised by them retracting/flecking, they were alive!
Can anyone confirm if they are indeed goose barnacles?
