Mewsbrook Park invertebrates & the beach

Jelly Ear Fungus, Auricularia auricula-judae
On February 21st and 22nd I visited Mewsbrook Park and the beach. There were plenty of invertebrates under logs and bark in the woodland area. A patch of elm trees was interesting as I had never seen the 'wings' on the bark of this tree. Wind surfers were enjoying the conditions and I spotted a clump of Dog-whelk egg capsules on a groyne.
