Victims of the stormy seas

Look what we found on our beach this morning? At least 25 dead Octopus over a 300 metre stretch of beach. Octopus are found in Scottish waters and are thought to be increasing in number, especially in the North Sea, probably as a result of their natural predators such as cod being reduced in number. Very sad though to see them succumb to the stormy weather and rough seas.
