Blue Rayed Limpet (Patella pellucida) - David Wood

Dave on the Oa found a pellet near Stremnishmore a few weeks ago. It simply disintegrated when he tried to pick it up but he managed to bag most of it up and take some pictures. It's a mixture of rove beetles, weevils, wool, bone, and most interestingly, a blue rayed limpet, on which you can still see the beautiful electric blue lines! We're not sure who it belongs to, I suspect a crow given the composition and size of the pellet.  - Crystal
