Nature Table Number 6

A snapshot of the Beach at Benodet Point St Gilles in Brittany.

A walk with Nature table explorers Joan, Barrie and Rowan was full of finds .

The rocks on this shore are granite and the pebbles are a mixture of colours and patterns or glassy smooth quartz ranging from pure white through to mustard or grey.

Because of the rock type there are large rock pools on the beaches and plenty of limpets and winkles. The limpets also range in size and colour and weathering .

Oyster catchers were flying across the surface of the water and sand martens were swooping. A lovely beach.
