The dough-nut shaped eggs were very small (< 1 mm diameter) under a rock at the mid-shore level on Guernsey's east coast (sheltered shore) on 17 June 2003. I was at maximum magnification when I took this photo so frame width would be about 12 mm. The rock was in a shallow muddy, gravely pool (< 30 cm depth at low water). The area is covered continuously during neap tides.
you identify this Sea Bream caught by an angler off Sussex in the summer
Last year, 2000, we came across some hard orange balls about the size of grapefruits, they have a hard solid skeleton just like a Brain Coral and covered in very small polyps. Again this year we have spotted a few small ones, however a recent diving trip to Devon, we found many up to the size of a small orange - photos. We seem unable to find any reference to these in the ID guides - do you have any ideas?
is it? It is small, it would fit underneath a coin.
