A cluster of closed local sea anemones
Sea anemones are flower like animals that live stuck to rocks in the sea, often close to the shore and can be seen in rock pools around the coastal area of the UK. As the tide comes in, the sea anemones are covered by water and their tentacles are uncovered which they use to capture food. At low tide the tentacles are drawn inside are covered up for protection.

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.
