Seen something on the sea shore?

Shells on a sandy beach.

Found something interesting on the beach, in a rock pool or clinging to a cliff? Upload a photograph of your possible fossil, shells, bones and other interesting natural history finds and our scientists will try and identify it for you.

Did you know that species from all over the world, not just the British Isles, regularly wash up on our shores? There is a huge diversity of animal and plant live on the coast around the UK, from seaweeds to crabs and snails to fish, and this is the place to discuss it.
