You're welcome. I've done that a lot! I'm desperately hoping I get a better photo of the barn owl so I can do the same :)

Thanks Cindy; I've deleted my previous barnacle spotting which I had forgotten about. These pictures are better.

The light brown ones are Goose necked (or neck) barnacles. I'm on my phone so I can't look up the name.
