Description:

Annual emptying of Thanet's largest tidal pool (at low tide end would be 5m) Found in sublittoral, submerged probably most of the time here, when the sluice gates are shut. These were the guys that died in their thousands 2 years ago (hypothermia), so good to see many of these kicking about.
