Our picture of the week is from Banner reader Peter Allen of Catacol who sent us this stunning image of a long line of sea potatoes on Pirnmill beach. Also known as heart urchins, owing to their distinctive heart shape, the test (shell) of the urchin is usually covered in dense fur-like spines while the animal is alive. When empty the test is white and very brittle and can be found on sandy and muddy shores all round the UK. No_B36POTW01
