Thinking of going rock pooling in Cornwall? You’ve come to the right place.
There’s something about rock pooling. It’s a window on the underwater world. It’s the freedom of wandering between the blue sky and sparkling sea, never knowing what you will find. It’s a joy every child should experience, and that every adult should rediscover.

Found in the rock pools this week…
It’s been an amazing week for finding stalked jellyfish. Over the last few days, including a survey with Natural England on Friday, I’ve recorded 48 stalked jellies on the beaches around Looe in South East Cornwall. All three species are tiny and well-camouflaged among the seaweed, but well-worth the effort of searching for.
I’m delighted that Cornish Rock Pools has been named ‘Blogger of the Week’ by the BBC Wildlife Magazine for my report on finding and photographing these gorgeous Scarlet and gold cup corals this week. Read more here.
Please do let me know if you find anything interesting or unusual. Happy rockpooling!
