Mysterious find on Cornish beach!

Observed: 28th July 2012 By: Fizzyhog

Found washed up on the beach in Cornwall. It appeared to be alive when I found it- it was moving the legs/ tentacles/ bits inside the claw like structures. They were semi soft- felt like a human nail.
I saw a couple more identical creatures nearby.

Goose barnacles?

Is it not a bunch of goose barnacles attached to something?
