Yesterday on the beach oakhillside found two empty Ensis clams, covered with two cockles. She had brought them home, because she found them so interesting. When she showed them to me, I saw them move and cried: “They are alive!” And indeed the two cockles glued on the outside moved. We put them in water with what salt, wondering what they would eat. Some spinach leaves? Who knows? The next day we read everything there is to find on the internet about bivalves. As we learned that they eat plankton, the only option was to bring them back to sea. To sea we went. We released them in the hope that they will have a chance to live a bit longer.
