A common whelk

A common whelk
The common whelk is a mollusc and tends to live in cold salt-water areas. It feeds on worms, crustaceans and other molluscs; it has a brilliant sense of smell which uses it to differentiate between food and predators.

The beaches around Hastings Pier are full of wildlife and plants, there are many rock pools to discover with an array of interesting species, including molluscs, crustaceans, and sea anemone. This region of the English Channel also supports many important sea fish populations including cod, Dover sole, mackerel and plaice.
