UK Sea Urchins

I have seen relatively large sea urchins in Porth Kerris, Cornwall and around Skomer. I never thought that you would see such white, large sea urchins in the UK, and if you look closer, they have purple and blue tints to them. In my opinion, they are much prettier and exotic than the smaller black spiky urchins you see in warmer waters.
