We have the best rock pools in the world here in Cornwall. OK, I may be a teensy bit biased, but if you’d like to find crabs, fish, starfish, urchins, anemones and more, you’ll be in for a treat.

To help you make the most of your rock pooling adventures, my easy-to-use photo guides help you to identify your finds. Hover over the ‘Wildlife’ tab in the menu above or use the links below:

There is a lot more to the beach than meets the eye. My first book, Rock Pool, takes you on a journey between the tides to discover the secrets of our shores and reveal the immense challenges that marine wildlife faces to survive against the odds. Meet fish that can breathe out of the water, spectacular sea slugs, crabs that shelter in the tentacles of anemones and barnacles that take over the brains of crabs. Told through stories of encounters with twelve creatures, this book will change the way you see rock pools forever.

Available from all book shops and online.

When you’re out at the beach, keep an eye out for sea birds and other marine wildlife near the shore. You never know what you might see…
