Live beach, and the blood worms

Those pensioners had a good time kidding me about getting a shovel and digging worms that I could sell for 10 pence each to help pay for our holiday. Asking a few more questions, we learned that a live beach contains a variety of creatures, such as isopods, beetles, beach hoppers, sand crabs as well as the blood worms (red worms) all of which survive by scavenging in the sand for food which includes smaller creatures in that environment.
