Incredible volume of sea creatures dumped on West Sands beach, St Andrews. On Monday 24th December you could barely see the sand for all the animals, mainly starfish, sea urchins, razor shells, shellfish, and crabs. Many if not most of the animals were still alive. There were also lots of what I think are sea slugs, alive. The biggest I saw was as long as my forearm. These are just a few of the things I saw. I'd particularly like to know what is the bright blue shellfish (seen as an odd blue squishy ball), the brown thing that looks a bit like coral, and what type of sea slug this is. The starfish is an odd one with seven legs, maybe it grew an extra one following an accident? There were many of this variety starfish.
