Steve Chapman (Stoke Newington) was
swimming off the Camber Sands (near Rye), East Sussex, at the beginning
of September 1999,
when he felt a slight wasp-like sting, which was not really apparent until
he left the water. The wound was on his lower leg and was small, not even
finger sized, about 13 mm x 9 mm, red and sore with about 10-15 scab-like
pin pricks which looked infected. After he rinsed his leg the slight sting
was relieved and he was just left with a small wound.
Is anybody able to confirm this is a jellyfish
sting from their own experience?
Can anybody identify this nudibranch?

The BMLSS presented the Annual Photographic Exhibition to celebrate World Oceans Day on 8 June 1999.
A similar exhibition is planned for the year 2000.
This is a simple project or request to members and readers of this Bulletin. It is to take pictures of the coast when you are next down on the shore. Even general views have value, but ideally we would like photographs of the shore showing the type of rock, topography and rock pools, dominant fauna, and information that cannot be described adequately by words on the Report Cards. The name of the particular coast should be included and the grid reference, if known. Print photographs can be included in Exhibitions and on the BMLSS Web Sites and electronic publications. Electronic images in *.JPG format can also be considered for the web site. Transparency photographs are the best choice of film but these cannot be transferred to the web pages at the present time, but these will be suitable in the future.
