there are a few species here

there are a few species here I have given an id for the middle one but in the background there is sand binder weed (Rhodothamniella floridula) which is the fine red stuff mixed with sand. In the middle right at the bottom of the photo is serrated wrack (fucus serratus)then the bright green is likely to be sea leuttice (ulva lactuca)

Thank you very much

It was a very interesting day. I haven't really had even a half-thorough search of the shore since my A level biology field trip to Wembury in the 80s....

Waiting

Such a long wait for an agreement. Why are there so few of us interested in seaweeds?

Soon

Am planning another trip to the coast (it's an hour's drive)

rules!

Right then, you know the rules for seaweed posts - lots of pictures, some descriptive notes, scale in the picture - quality for marine algae but no such demands for marine Inverts!
Enjoy..
