Something always catches my eye in amongst the prevailing horrors of our world today and this is it.
Perhaps my latest piece of pointless information ?
Woman finds UK’s first Warty Doris sea slug
A rare sea slug normally found in warmer waters has been discovered in the UK for the first time.
Warty Doris (Doris verrucosa) was found in coastal waters in southern England in what conservationists are hailing a “rare privilege “.
The peculiar-looking yellow sea creature gets its name from the tubercle-shaped warts all over it
It usually lives in the Mediterranean and Adriatic. Wildlife Trust volunteer Jenny Mallinson found a Warty Doris while she was conducting a survey in Hythe, Hampshire.
Ms Mallinson said: “Simply by going to our local beach at low tide, we could all make such discoveries .”
I plan to squirrel this nugget of information away for the family Boxing Day quiz!
