MOON JEL­LY­FISH

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

Each sum­mer, when real news can be some­thing of a rar­ity, our press may carry what are dis­parag­ingly known as ‘silly-sea­son sto­ries’ – triv­i­al­i­ties pro­fess­ing to be im­por­tant or fic­tions dressed up as facts. In­fes­ta­tions of ‘man-eat­ing’ sharks are one such tale. So, too, plagues of jel­ly­fish tor­ment­ing sea-bathing tourists. In the lat­ter, at least, there is a germ of truth. The harm­less Moon Jel­ly­fish is the com­mon­est jel­ly­fish in our in­shore wa­ters.
