18 December 2015

Goose Barnacles, Lepas anatifera, have been washed ashore in Dorset in the last few months and now the first strandings of the year were found on Shoreham Beach, Sussex, left by the recent high spring tides, washed ashore attacked to floating objects, a small boat fender and on two bottles. The Goose Barnacles were probably alive when left on the strandline with the usual wracks, mollusc shells, Mermaid's Purses, cuttlebones, etc., but died, or were dying (after ten minutes waiting for one or two the filamentous cirri or feeding tentacles to be seen moving), after being left high and dry out of the water. 

Goose Barnacles are a widespread large pelagic barnacle found attached to objects by their long stalk or peduncle in warmer seas than around Britain and most likely have been blown on floating objects across the Atlantic Ocean from the seas around the south-eastern United States of America.
