What will the second Big Shell Counting Day of 16 March bring?

Oostende (2019.03.06) – Excited as we are, we started counting down towards Saturday 16 March. On that day the second edition of the national Big Shell Counting Day will take place along the Belgian coast. The weather in the forthcoming week will be decisive for what will wash up that day, and what species will be in the top-10 this year. We already give fifteen contenders – the top 15 of last year – with text and images. (full press release in Dutch only)
