SOME amazing sea creatures were collected on Coverack beach as children and adults scoured the rock pools to see what could be found hiding in the darkest corners.

Coverack Space 2000 had organised the seashore safari as part of its summer programme of events.

Co-ordinator Caroline Beadle said: "There was a really good turnout as many joined us to peer under rocks and dip deep in search of rock pool creatures.

"Separate tanks were provided so that all the finds could be looked at and identified.

"Enthusiast Peter Wood was on hand to give guidance on identification as well as providing charts and books.

"In just an hour there were separate tanks teeming with fish, crabs, shrimps, prawns, shellfish, worms, sea squirts and much more."

Peter Wood has been sharing his knowledge on Coverack rock pool safaris for a number of years now.

He was joined this year by Dan Beadle.

Mr Wood said his favourite part of the afternoon was when the creatures were released back into the sea to get on with their own lives.
