#30DaysWild – Day 6 – Sea Anemone

Sea anemones as part of the Wildlife Trusts' #30DaysWild challengeTWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_06When the Met Office predicts gusts of wind up to 40 mph and flags up a yellow weather warning it’s wise to stay indoors and rest on your laurels – especially when trees are falling down and branches are tumbling close to your head.

Sea anemone as part of the Wildlife Trusts' #30DaysWild challengeI did brave the wild and windy elements but I haven’t downloaded my photos yet, so I’m cheating a bit and sharing a couple of photos of some lovely sea anemones I found last week when we visited Elmer beach on the South Coast. If I’ve got it right these are Actina equine and in real life they are absolutely glorious. You’ll find them hugging the shade in rock pools but you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled or you’ll walk straight past without noticing them (as I did at first!)

Anyone else taken photos of sea anemones for the #30DaysWild challenge? I’d love to see them so please post a link to your photos in the comments box.
