The dust bin sized jellyfish - Rhizostoma pulmo

A notable wildlife siting last week whilst paddling around the coast from Stackpole to Barafundle were the large number of barrel jellyfish in the water. Other sightings are coming in from Pembs and from England http://www.theguardian.com/environment/shortcuts/2015/may/25/scare-stories-giant-jellyfish-beasts-of-the-deep

These are the food source for leatherback turtles and sunfish so hopefully they are benefiting from this.
