A beautiful day and perfect to go rock pooling. Today we found a sea lemon on the lower shore of West Braes beach. This is a sea slug – bright yellow and shaped like a lemon – so perfectly named. If you look carefully at the photo below you can see it has little horns at the front (eye stalks) and at the back a series of fluffy gills.
