Its been a week of beach combing, identifying and exploring, as well as some looking at what makes the tide.

These are the lists of the species we observed, examined and sometimes collected. A great selection of creatures found in the intertidal zone, and even in the centre! Over the summer, mini-entries about the species we’ve found will be added to the Fantastic Creatures and Where to Find Them page. If anyone wants to comment, ask questions or add anectdotes, please go ahead!

If you ever forget how tides work, here is one quick video explanation.
