Man 'o war?


It's quiet. So quiet in fact, that I can hear mains hum from a techno gizmo at the far end of the room. It's not an entirely unpleasant experience, given my frantic lifestyle of late, however it's completely alien. The kids are in bed, knackered after a weekend in the outdoors. My wife has followed their example.

So I'm here, for once, wondering how to fill my time, and thought I should blog. I hope that there's still one or two of you with my feed in your reader. If so, hello!

Please enjoy this jellyfish that we found in a rock pool at Bamburgh yesterday. I think it's a man-o-war (circa 3 inches diameter)? Apparently they're common in the south of England and are finding their way up north. Please correct me if I've got my species wrong.

Here's a video of it swimming complete with kid commentaryr;





And these are Black Headed Gulls, yes? Greedy bastards either way. Nicked me sausage roll they did..

I've still kept your feed active. Hello to you, too!

Beautiful jellyfish! I've never seen one like that.

Hi Susannah, nice to hear from you. I did wonder whether you would drop in and tell me what species it was!

I looked for the species in my local encyclopedia. Sometimes our animals are the same as UK ones. Not this time; we don't seem to have any large blue jellies in BC.

I found one on Wikipedia that may be yours: Blue Jellyfish.

Thanks Susannah - I think you're bang on. Found this link with some user photos that look just like our specimen! Apparently it's one of the rarer species around our coasts, so was a good find.
