Even the seagulls look concerned! More jellyfish wash up in Burnham

More jellyfish have been washing up along tidelines in Burnham-On-Sea, Brean and Berrow this week during a series of high tides.

Several Moon and Barrel Jellyfish, which can deliver a mild sting to paddlers and swimmers, were washed up along Burnham-On-Sea beach this week.

Even the paddling seagulls appeared to look a little bemused about them, as pictured above!

Beachwarden Dave Furber told Burnham-On-Sea.com that over 200 jellyfish were washed up on one high tide last week following last Tuesday's strong winds, as pictured below.

"They can give a nasty sting so we are advising people using the sea to keep an eye out for them around the tide line," he added.

A spokesman for the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "While some jellyfish are harmless or have a very mild sting, others have a more painful sting. We recommend that, for your own safety, you do not touch them and watch out for them if using the sea where they have been seen."
