Im a lot further up, my closest beach will be either Cresswell or Newbiggin by the sea. I wonder if it's too cold for them up here? I know it is almost too cold for the human life form lolWhen i've found them the birds have already eaten the fish part. They are literally the same as you buy in the pet shop.
At certain times of the year in bournemouth(seaside resort in UK) the beach is covered with them.
