@amy: Thanks Amy - I guess someone wanting to use your images commercially is the ultimate compliment isn't it.

leslie from Bruce Penninsula, Canada

terrific series. very interesting, i have never heard of Cockle pickers before.
is it the cockle of the nursery rhyme....."silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row"?
that's so cool

@leslie: Thanks leslie! - yes, they are one and the same....a bit like a clam shell but a little bit smaller and with a ribbed shell rather than a smooth one and much more common in the UK.
