This is a series of pictures showing some of the things I noticed as I walked along Knoll Beach at Studland late on a cold, wet, dull, afternoon at the end of November. The beach was virtually deserted although the many footprints showed that it had been a busy afternoon despite the wintry weather and overcast skies. There were a fresh assortment of natural ‘treasures’ to be found on the wet, rain-pocked, surf-washed, sand. These included empty Chequered Carpet shells with graphic black markings; live clusters of Slipper Limpets; an occupied Common Mussel with a Sea Belt holdfast attached; pieces of pale green and dark brown beach glass; and red, orange and brown seaweeds decorating the strandline.
