Dalgety Bay, Fife - Quickie easter update

Couple of nice surprise molluscs over the weekend. Oddly the Grey Sea Slug seems to be a lifer though I know for sure I have seen one before!

Also found were Sea Lemon eggs, helpfully shown in the Collins Shore guide.

  1. Those eggs are downright weird. But then so are the adults. Cool find, I like weird :)
