Storm strandings

The storms of January and February have killed  many seabirds and washed many marine animals out of the sandy habitats where they live and onto beaches all around SW Britain.  Already there are records of spiny cockles, razor clams, otter shells, ocean quahogs and sea cucumbers having been deposited on beaches as well as razorbills, guillemots and puffins.  If you have seen any mass stranded marine wildlife on the beaches of Carmarthen Bay and its estuaries during and since the storms, please do let us know through the contacts page.  Also let us know if you have photographs of the strandings you would like to share.

Many thanks.
