A Weedy Walk along the Shore

CREATURE FEATURE

These Seaweeds or Marine Macroalgae were strewn on our local shores after the recent storms.

There are 3 main groups ,reds,greens & browns ,sometimes hard to distinguish when some of the browns look green & vice versa. If you’d like information on the seaweeds & sea grasses there is a small booklet called “Marine Macroalgae & Sea Grasses of the Bega Valley”  produced by BVSC.

I know this is under the heading of Creature Feature so I have included the Hooded & Red Capped Plovers that feast on the tiny arthropods in the weed & also use the  weed for shelter.
