After all of our big green rockpooling nets had been distributed, we ambled down to the shore and began hunting for critters.
It wasn’t long before the first common periwinkle was found, and then the first beadlet anemone, and then Crabs!! Lots of crabs. Brown crabs, green shore crabs and plenty of cute little hermit crabs hiding in their periwinkle shells and top shells. There were big crabs and little crabs, fast crabs and slow crabs, shy crabs and rather nippy crabs.
