Flame shells reef is a giant
Thursday 27 December 2012

It is the largest known colony of flame shells in Britain and possibly the world, according to experts.
“With Scottish waters covering an area around five times bigger than our landmass, it’s a huge challenge to try and understand more about our diverse and precious sea life.”
