typical East Sussex pebble beach, high levels of marine debris due to stormy weather.
One single animal attached to an old leather clog which had washed up in the stormy weather. Barnacle was around 1 inch in length with half inch stem. Extending cirri out as shoe was picked up but quickly withdrew. Shoe also has a lot of seaweed attached around the base. Threw shoe back into water in hope of barnacle surviving windy, warm weather.
