  1. Hi TFF, Last week the GF and I went for the holy trio (geological wise ), the turonian, cenomanian and albian. It's simply amazing that in a relatively short stretch of cliffs you can find all three. Driving our way there it seemed like the UK also had some decent weather that day as it was quite visible. We first hit the turonian. On the way there you can find santonian(?) deposits which produce some nice flint urchins. I'm usually looking for big ammonites like lewesiceras or mammites. Only two small examples were found that we did not take home. In
  2. Hello everyone, and welcome back to another trip report! Last week, me and my family went to France once again, but this time to northern France, near Cap Blanc Nez. Cap Blanc Nez is a well-known fossil-hunting site for its ammonites and other fossils. It is located quite near the coast of England, and if the weather's clear you can see the cliffs of Dover very clearly. Day 1: it's a start The first fossil trip was rather disappointing. We walked down the stairway to the beach and headed directly to Grand Blanc Nez, the main landmark in the area. We started search
  3. This Weekend was very busy,saturday afternoon the tide was low and allow a good hunt on the Cap blanc nez with a very grey weather ,heavy rain sometimes a a Mantelliceras picteti from the Cenomanian was here And a Turrilites costatus Big pieces of Calcite time to see the Gault clay Anice pyrite Hoplite from the Albian on the sand small samples to ID inside the clay time to go back on the way :) Today morning with the sun but high tide And before living
  4. A few weeks ago I went back to Cap Blanc-Nez in France. The variety of fossils that can be found there (aptian,albian,cenomanian,turonian) is the reason I keep coming back. Just 30 mins on the beach together with a french buddy and already a tripmaker. A freshly eroded morrowites, barely touched by the sea. While further excavating it seems a second ammonite is below. Highlighted because it's not that easy to see. Turns out to be a small Lewesiceras, incomplete anyway. Back to the good stuff. The split went like a dream, can't get any

    Turonian jewel in the chalk

    During the first part of our summer holiday we spent a few days at Cap-Blanc-Nez. The tides and weather weren’t optimal for fossil hunting and lots of tourism at the location didn’t help much either, so our finds were relatively limited. The last day however we found 1 spectacular piece. A little brown spot was reflecting light on one of the loose boulders on the beach. It was a ptychodus tooh peeking out. They are very rare there and this one allone was worth the trip. After the prep at home it only got better, the tooth was complete and of considerable size. Enjoy the pic
  6. A week ago my friend Diego (@fossilesdecapblancnez) sent me a message that he'd found a big lewesiceras peramplum (lower turonian, grand blanc nez formation). This is the ammonite in situ. He decided to leave it alone and come back with me a week later to extract it and carry it of the beach since it's huge. So that makes it yesterday. He arrived a bit early after high tide but luckily the ammonite was still there as the site is frequently collected. As you can see the pebbles moved quite a lot in a weeks time. It's good and bad, lots of erosion but a
  7. A very nice WE first day The Cap Blanc Nez
  8. I've enjoyed many trip reports that @Manticocerasman made about the chalk cliffs at Cap Blanc-Nez that I decided to make one myself. A big tide, warm sunny weather and the summer season approaching... I only like one of those 3, a big tide The goal was to visit the albian gault layers if they were visible, but they were covered with sand. I've collected some of cenomanian fauna already thus I decided to visit the turonian boulders. Hunting in the turonian is not easy, it can be hours before you see something and everything has odd shapes that could be something. Th
  9. Not a lot of finds,but a nice Sunny Day
  10. I find the time to "open" this chalk ball from the Cap blanc nez northern France,i was almost certain to broke the sample,that's happen and i have to glued it,but i found a little track of shell when i dig it a little a very nice brachiopod inside perfectly "fresh"! nice surprise!
  11. Hi everyone, Last week after getting lots of recommendations from people I spend a couple of days at Cap Blanc Nez in France to look for some fossils. And while it wasn't to most bountyfull hunt I did have a lot of fun and I was very pleased with the little finds that I managed to do. We had very nice weather, it was sunny and the temperature was just perfect for fossil hunting, and the cliffs and beach (and landscape overall) were absolutely stunning. The fossils in Cap Blanc Nez date back to the Cretaceous and there are deposits from the Turonian, Cenoma
  12. It has been to long since we posted a fieldtrip, but the curent worldwide situation did hamper our fossil hunts. A few days before Chritmas the situation in France changed and we could again go to the beaches in the North for fossil hunts. The 24th we went to the "Grand Blanc Nez" to prospect the turonian boulders en hopfully score a few big ammonites. This time we were als prepared for big finds: we took a handcart with us, because the previous time we had trouble to bring a couple of ammonites back to the car due to their weight ( 2 km on foot with more than 30 kg of ammonites

    Fish & fossils

    Although we didnt realy plan for a fossil field trip, we did go to Boulogne sur mer yesterday to visit the aquarium "Nausica". and since the chalk cliffs of cap blanc nez are only 20min away from there we did make a stop for a couple of hours at the beach at the cliffs. I can recomend a visit to the aquarium to enyone who visit's the are, it is definitely worth a visit, although the entrence fee is quite expensive. On our visit at the beach we were only equiped with a small hammer, but lots of boulders shore were already broken through the waves and still deliverd quite a lot

    Bone ID from the cenomanian chalk of France.

    I'm used to find ammonites and invertebrates, but this time I took home piece of chalk from the beach with a bone inside. I have totaly no Idea of what kind of bone this is or even from what kind of creature. I am still prepping the piece, but those are already the 1st few pictures. hopefully someone got more info on this: Cenomanian from cap-blanc-nez France ( marine chalk deposits)

    Ammonite hunt in Northern France

    We are back from a very windy fieldtrip to Cap blanc Nez in France. The wind covered a lot of the rocks with sand and sea foam ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_foam ) which made fossil hunting rather difficult. We were helped by a local collector in the morning who guided us through the Turonian deposits of this site where we rarely colect, here we got 2 big ammonites. One of them was a Mamites nodosoides, this species as been on my wishlist for a while, so I am very happy with it In the afternoon we prospected the Cenomanian side. her we found the usu

    Albian ammonites

    last weekend on our field trip where we usually search for cenomanian ammonites we also found a few phosphate ammonites on the beach that were washed out on the beach from the lower albian layers. most of them were only fragments or encrusted with phosphate, but I managed to prep few of them with very good results: the specimen on the bottom of the picture: Anahoplites planus Hoplites sp. Euhoplites ochetonus
  18. I just spend the evening cleaning and preping some of the cephalopods I found last weekend. those are all from the cenomanian at the French coast. A couple of nautiloids ( Eutrephoceras sp. ) A couple of turrelites and a Manteliceras sp.
  19. This Saturday Natalie and I hit the road towards the jurassic and cretaceous clifs in the North of France. This is a 2h trip from where we live, so we left early to make most of the use of the favorible tides on those beaches. the 1st stop were the Titonian deposits near Wimereux, not the most easy place to find fossils, but with patience some nice fossils can be found. Th big problem although on this trip was the wind... this made it relatively hard to search for fossils. we did manage to find a couple of jurassic ammonites, one of them was more than 30cm in
  20. this evening part 2 of the preppwork on the ammonites we found this weekend: Next up is a Schloenbachia varians of the Cenomanian of Cap blanc Nez in France: work in progres: the end result: the 2nd one of the evening was a Mantelliceras saxbii found by Natalie from the same location: The specimen is a little compressed and I thought that the center wasn't preserved, I was wrong. Work in progres: the end result: both specimens:
  21. Together with my father I went to Cap Blanc Nez in France last sunday. The weather was good, no wind and a beautiful clear sky. Ideal to go to Cap Blanc Nez. It's about an hour drive form where I live. The goal was to find my first ammonite since I have never found one before. I'm still a total noob at hunting fossils. Thanks to some tips from Mantoccerasman i finally found my first ammonites. And I'm very proud of it. Wonderful feeling to find those traces of life from million years ago. Wednesday I tried the preparation of the fossils I've found. It was the first time ever that I
  22. This Christmas I spent 4 days of fossil hunting with my girlfriend on the French coast. The planning was 2 days in Normandy at the "Vaches Noires" cliffs in villers sur mer and one day at Cap blanc Nez near Calais ( we finally extended the trip with one extra day near Boulogne sur mer ) Day 1: The first day we got at Villers sur mer after a 4h drive from home. Once at the cliffs we had to wait a little while since the tide wasn't low enough, but the beginning of the cliffs were already accessible. The fossil fauna was very variable, we found echinoid spines, e
  23. Hey everyone Last week I went to a small mineral/fossil market/exhibition near Lille (northern France). The thing lasted the whole weekend (29th and 30th September) - I managed to get to it just a few hours before it closed. There wasn't much diversity in terms of fossils, but I did spot some rather neat stuff - including some cool vertebrate specimens Cephalic 'armour' of a small placoderm (don't really remember from where, tho... ) Well-preserved eurypterid from the Silurian of Ukraine
  24. Yesterday my girlfriend and I made a fieldtrip to the Northern French coast. The tides were ideal to search for the whole day in the late cretaceous chalk deposits of Cap Blanc Nez. The start was a bit slow, not a lot of fossils to be seen, but when going further up the beach the first ammonites started to apear. the result of the day where a few decent ammonites ( schloenbachia varians and Mantelliceras sp. ), a few shark teeth: Natalie found most of them and she found a spectacular cowshark teeth, the first one I ever saw from there. My find of the day was
  25. Hi TFF friends, Last week I spend my holidays in france, and went fossil hunting at cap blanc-nez just after the hurricane David hit northern europe. As i walked in direction of wissant i found inside an albian formation(i think it is les sables vert, it is clay mixed with glauconite) the following objects. It is 8cm long for the biggest part, 2.5cm to 3cm large, 1cm at the thickest place. It is slightly curve and the cross section is a U shape.
