Wait for me! A common Periwinkle makes its way down to the tide on Dollar Bay and leaves quite an impressive trail as it does so. They don’t normally wander too far from their habitats but in order to lay their eggs, they must make this long, arduous trek (in snail-pace terms anyway!)
What you may find as a cute little shell, mussles fear this ancient carnivour coming to eat them in their shells. Who needs ghost stories with this going on.
Pretty shell or tasty snack? You decide. These pretty mollusc shells are a common sight on Irish beaches whether the owner is at home or not.
