Probable Lion's Mane Jellyfish at Roome Bay

Probable Lion’s Mane Jellyfish at Roome Bay

I came back today from a week in Spain and Portugal – not the best week to be away from Crail with one of the best migrant falls for many years occurring at the end of last week. Still the wildlife in Extremadura was pretty good too. I started the day watching pallid swifts over Lisbon and finished it watching common swifts over Crail – a couple of late season birds dashing over the High Street at dusk catching a snack on their way south. They may well be in Lisbon themselves tomorrow.

A neighbour sent me a photo of a large jellyfish they found in the boating pond at Roome Bay. It’s probably a small Lion’s Mane jellyfish – about 30 cm across here – but it can grow up to a meter or more.
