Shell identification

Good morning. As lots of people are heading to beaches around the UK, we thought a Shell Identification chart was on the cards. So here it is - written by the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth, its relevant for all UK beaches (and mudflats) and its great fun finding the names for all the shells you see.

If you want to take it one step further, you can download the inaturalist app and log your finds on there for all the projects we have in the UK (and Europe!). My children love doing this!

Have fun shell hunting!
