After we’d finished our beach clean today we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to film some of the Honeycomb worm reefs that are exposed along our coastline at low tide. Check out the video to see them in their natural habitat.
We’ve written a blog post before telling you all about the Honeycomb worms (Sabellaria alveolata) so have a read of that if you’d like to know more.
Look out for the Honeycomb worms when you next visit the Colourful Coast!
For some time we have been working with Copeland Borough Council, Natural England and the Colourful Coast Partnership to put together a proposal to extend the St Bees Head Heritage Coast northwards towards Whitehaven. The extension proposals have been out for public consultation for the last few weeks and the consultation process closes tomorrow. We urge you to use this opportunity to have your say on the proposals and the protection of this stretch of coast. All the information about the proposals and details of how to submit your comments can be found here.
