  1. 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

    Acanthoceras rhotomagense prep

    On our last fieldtrip to France this weekend we found a chalk-boulder with a quite large ammonite in it. The chalk was realy hard, but I was able to reduce it in size to take it back home. At the start of the prep with chislle and hammer I got a lucky split where the boulder opened to reveal most of the ammonite. The airscribe then did a quick job to remove the last bits. Sadly the center of the ammonite wasn't preserved, I tried to sculpt the center as well as I could and coloured it to match the fossil. As for the determination we had a little doubt between Cunningt
  3. During the Christmas holiday we had the opportunity to go on 2 field trips to the north of France. 1st one was just after Christmas when we visited the Turonian part of the cliffs. Here we found a couple of nice ammonites ( Mammites nodosoides and a realy nice Fagesia catinus ) and a big flint echinoid. (with @Natalie81 and @Euhoplites) The second trip was last weekend, but we had no luck with the weather this time and we had heavy rainfall for most of the day. Also lots of competition that day. Not a lot of fossils to be found that day: a small flint echi

    What did I prep

    I brought a piece of marl from my trip to France that had some interior bits sticking out. The location is Pointe du Chay (south of La Rochelle) and age Kimmeridgian - Jurrassic. Two of the pieces I prepped out this weekend (first successful attempt in doing so despite too much glue). The tube like structure and what I first expected to be a bivalve from the outside but I don’t know any with a hexagonal pattern. thanks in advance for your help
  5. Ahunt into the Mist today But i have found nice Alethopteris nice Eusphenoptheris But it was a great day for Lepidodendron! Good sigillaria nice calamites trunk a trigonocarpus(fossil seed) And why not minerals to make a change septaria(i neglected them,in the past)but these are very nice
  6. Hi all, So normally, the weekend of 19-20-21 May I was gonna go with my family to Cap-Blanc-Nez (in France) with the WTKG, but unfortunately that excursion got canceled because, aside from me, only one other person applied! Luckily, as it is the place where my dad proposed to my mom (and therefore this area means a lot to them), and they would like to go back, we decided to go there next week (7-8-9 May)! We already booked a B&B in Wissant for the 3 nights. I am looking forward to it! So, as preparation for the upcoming trip, I am turning towards the most experien

    What corals?

    Hello everybody, i need help identfying those corals. They Come from an Aquitanian-Burdigalian site in the South-West of France. The scale is in centimeters. Thank you very much for your help. Sophie.
  8. I'm just wondering if an Ampelosaurus tooth has ever been sold to a private collection. Any information on that is much appreciated.
  9. Hi I’ve seen this claw for sale and is listed as coming from France and belonging to a theropod dinosaur known as Variraptor. Does this look like a theropod dinosaur claw to anyone else?

    Charentes Amber (Fouras Peninsula, ~100.5-98 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    Select specimens of Charentes amber, 5.5g in total weight (far right specimen is 2.9g, 20x19x16mm); these are the more attractive specimens of a 45.5g lot, while most are opaque with a light yellow-beige coloration; some have transparent layers alongside translucent and opaque layers, and one specimen has a marcasite inclusion near its center. This material is extremely fragile and low-fractile, crumbling quite easily. Since 2005 the original site on Fouras for this amber has since been developed, and is no longer accessible; what few exposures do remain yield very little material (this is als

    Ammonites from France

    Hello everyone. Bought these from Ron. Thank you Ron. Seems I have several species from what he recalls as being Aveyron France and Toarcian in age. I have one more species I think but any help on these would be appreciated. Also, any information on how to preserve pryitized fossil would be appreciated.

  21. Still more sorting to do but the belemnites are done. I am struggling to understand the differences between the different Neohiboletes. looking at http://le-coin-a-fossiles.fr/Gargasien.html there are three known species also from the topic below there are diplobelenid phragmacones
  22. Today was another great day huntig for carboniferous plants,with few good surprises
  23. This tooth was a surface find from Carniol. It was found by my partner and she just put it in her box without telling me recognising for what it was. Nice surprise when sorting / cleaning. On another forum a similar tooth from the same location was identified as Protosphyraena. Cretaseous, Aptian, Gargasian. There are no serrations visible under 10x magnification. At the base the toot is about 5.8mm wide and 4.1mm thick.
  24. This weekend we had some nice weather for this time of the year , so we went to the beaches in the north of France for a stroll with the dog and hopefully some fossils. It is a 2h drive from were we live, so we got there around 10 o’clock. That’s around the time that the tide was starting to lower again, so we had all day access to the beach. We started our walk in Sangatte, just under Calais. And went south following the Turonian chalk cliffs. After a while we spotted our 1st fossil echinoid between the flint pebbles on the beach. Further South, the retreating tide started to
