Horned wrack

If it is a brackish estuarine habitat have a look at Horned Wrack Fucus ceranoides

The magic of nature is all around us - we just need to learn how to see it.

Not estuarine or brackish but the sea - salt water.

Yes, the absolute clue is just above the Limpet - a glimpse of the bladder of Bladderwrack. The elongate receptacles, on which can be seen the concepticals, are seen here - make certain you go down to Fucus vesiculosus.
