Back after the summer (in name if nothing else) and hopefully full of renewed enthusiasm and commitment for the autumn and winter terms ahead.
Pictured above is one of what were several (dead, presumably) jellyfish down on the beach. I hadn’t seen many at all this year but it seems that the big high tides from early last week washed some jellies up. I’ve not idea what species they are, but they’re not Lion’s Mane jellies that I wrote about five years ago. And these ones, also from 2010, look different again.
I’ve reported my sighting over on the Jellywatch website though at time of writing my entry isn’t yet live.
Talking of high tides, I noticed on the morning of Lifeboat Day that several yachts were moored on the beach opposite the sailing club (see below). You don’t normally see boats this end of the beach, they’re usually on moorings down at Meols. Why was that? Was it to do with the expected high tides or was it to do with Lifeboat Day?
