JOTTINGS FROJf NATURE. NOVEMBER 21. Whilst fishing from the Llandudno pier- head a friend of mine recently caught an example of the dragonet or skulpin, Calli- onymus lyra, which he was good enough to bring to me. Mr. H. E. Forrest in his Fauna states that the species is not uncom- mon off the north coast of Anglesea and in the Menai Straits, but gives no instance of its having been taken in Llandudno Bay or off the Denbighshire coast, though it is "frequently taken at the mouth of the Dee," where it spawns. I am told that it is but seldom taken with a line, and that as a rule it is caught in the shrimp-trawl. The study of the fishes and cetaceans which frequent our North Wales coast either per- manently or on migration is sadly neglect- ed it is true that from an economic point of view thev jre given some attention, but there must be a delight, an ever-increasing delight, in acquiring a knowledge not only of whether the forms we see, edible or otherwise, are of rare or frequent occurrence but also of the habits of all marine verte- brates.
