NT1977 : Digging for Lug

taken 7 years ago, near to Cramond, Edinburgh, Great Britain

Digging for Lug
Digging for Lug
Lugworms are prized for use as bait to catch sea fish including flounders and cod. The worms live in muddy sand, excavating a U-shaped burrow by ingesting sand and mud, and betraying their presence by excreting spaghetti-like casts when they have extracted all the nutrients from the ingested material. In the distance you can just see Barnbougle Castle on the far side of the bay.
