|Even with the lousy weather we've had these past few days there's still always something interesting to see on the beach.|
This week this unusual crystal jellyfish was spotted in a rockpool on Oldshoremore beach.
We frequently see several types of common jellyfish washed up on our beaches but this one is quite unusual.
Our friends at the Marine Conservation Society were kind enough to provide an identification for us.
The MCS are interested in all marine wildlife sightings and there is a section on their website specifically for you to do this.
If you fancy your hand at whale watching then you might be interested in an event being led by the Highland Council's countryside ranger at Sheigra shortly.
On Tuesday, 10 August 2010, between 2pm and 4pm you're invited to come along and take part in National Seawatch.
Meeting initially at the Sheigra car park, bring binoculars and scopes if you have them. There's a short walk to the clifftops where we hope to spot whales, dolphins and maybe even a basking shark.
There's a £3 fee for adults and £2 for children.
A full list of Countryside Ranger events can be found in the Documents section.
