  1. Hi, I've found this really nice small gastropod, it's a golden colour (the photos don't show it well, it's just slightly above the larger bivalve). Last time I found one like it, I carefully brought it inside and put it safely down, the next morning it was broken into pieces, and nothing had knocked it. I don't have anything here to preserve it, is there anything I could do so that it won't break, or to preserve it? Many thanks.
  2. Hi, I found this ironstone fossil inside a rock that I split earlier. It was full of some very nice fossils. I was wondering what this could be? It looks like a tooth, as it has many small upward facing points on one edge, but I imagine it is something else as there isn't enamel. Found in Northamptonshire, UK. I believe it is from the early Jurassic. It measures 1.8cm lengthways. Sorry the photos are quite zoomed out, the quality of the picture gets worse the closer I go. Many thanks.
  3. Hi, I've been sorting through some of my Jurassic fossils from Northamptonshire and I've been wondering about these fossils. They are from the Early Jurassic, and I have found many bivalves and belemnites in this area. Could the greyish slightly curved fossil near the top of the image be a coprolite of some sort? It seems to stick to the tongue. There is also the two bits of ironstone with small bumps, which I was wondering if they could be related to bivalves? Lastly there is a slightly curved object that I have no clue what it is. Many thanks.
  4. I have these fossils here from the early Jurassic, Northamptonshire. I was wondering if the one on the left could possibly be a coprolite, or some other fossil, although most likely not. It does stick to the tounge. I also have these bumps on bits of rock, and was wondering if they could possibly be due to bivalves? And lastly, a slightly curved thing that has equal thickness which I have no clue what it is. Many thanks
  5. Hi, I've had this for some time and it looks very much like a plant, or perhaps I'm just imagining things. It's from the Dyrham formation, which is Pliensbachian I believe. The split rock measures 2.8 cm across and 3.9cm in length. The picture in this would look like the stem, and I'll post a picture on the possible 'leaves' in a second. Thanks

    Fossil echinoid?

    I found this interesting fossil the other day, and have struggled to find out what it is. It's from the Jurassic of Northamptonshire. Scale is centimetres. It's partially broken, so may have been completely spherical? Many thanks. Sorry the pictures are a little dark.
  7. I'm not sure if this is a nice pattern or perhaps a fossil? Many thanks.
  8. Pleuromya

    Bivalves or brachiopods?

    I found these and am wondering if they are brachiopods, or just bivalves with symmetrical valves, as I have not yet found a brachiopod in this location yet. Sorry the photos are dark. Many thanks.

    Two very tiny fossils.

    Hello, these tiny fossils were difficult to photograph, I had to improvise by sellotaping a magnifier to the camera lens, as I do not have anything that can do the equivalent where I am now. I was wondering if one of them is possibly a bit of crinoid? The circular bit seemed to remind me of modern bone. Sorry they are muddy, I'd probably break them if I tried to wash them. Scale is in centimetres, and they were found in Northamptonshire, UK, which is Jurassic. Thanks.

    Is this a worm fossil?

    Hello, I noticed this looks like worm fossils, is it? I went to take some more pictures, but I think I've taken it away, so sorry that there is only one photo. It is from Northamptonshire, UK, which is Jurassic in age. Thanks.

    Fossil with dendritic patterns.

    Hello, I found this fossil in Northamptonshire, UK, which is Jurassic. I'd guess belemnite, but I'm not certain. One photo shows the fossil impression. The scale is in centimetres. Thanks.
  12. Pleuromya

    I'm not sure what these are.

    Hello, I picked these up among some gravel. Is anybody able to identify them? Sorry there's no scale, the first one is about 4cm, and the two in the second picture are each about 2cm. Thanks.

    Ammonites and gastropods.

    Hello, sorry to be a pain with all these IDs. I thought itd be easier if I just put all of them in one post. All were found in Northamptonshire, UK. Which is mostly Jurassic in age. Sorry there's no scale, I couldn't find my ruler anywhere. I'll have to upload more images below this. Its been quite some time since I've found ammonites. The land had just been rotavated, and aside from the ammonites, I found some Bivalves, and two golf balls buried. Thanks. These are the first two ammonites, I tried to ID them, but they are incomplete, so it was a difficulty, the closest I
  14. Hello, sorry to be a pain with all of these bivalve IDs. Is anybody able to ID any of these? They were found in Northamptonshire, UK, which is mostly Jurassic in age. Thanks.

    Is anybody able to ID this bivalve?

    Hello, I found this nice bivalve (I think), is anybody able to give a possible ID of it? Found in Northamptonshire, UK, which I think is mostly Jurassic in age.
  16. Hello, I found this. It looks like a bit of a large gryphaea, but it's probably not. Sorry there's no scale, it is 6cm long. I found it in Northamptonshire, UK. Thanks.
  17. Hello, I noticed this 'thing' embedded in rock, does anybody know what it could be? Found in Northamptonshire, UK. Thanks. Ahh, I just broke it accidentally when moving it. Here's a photo of the inside of it:
  18. I have some bantam hens, which are in a field. They are in a large enclosure whilst a fence is being put up around the whole field, as everybody is confined to their homes, I decided to let them out of the enclosure and keep watch of them, so they don't wander too far. There's an area that is just mud, which they went to, and I noticed a small shell on the surface of the ground, and after looking closer, I found many more. In the last few days, I have found very many in just a small area. Most are bound in ironstone, these are some of my favourites. I also found some nice patterns in some

    This is a very strange rock.

    Hello, I found this very strange rock. It has what looks like a fossil impression? And this strange hole that has scale-like structures in it. Is anybody able to tell me anything about this? Sorry there's no scale, I couldn't find a ruler. It's about 10cm long. I found it in Northamptonshire, UK. Thanks.
  20. Hello, I found these, I'm guessing bivalves, and was just wondering if anybody could tell me a little about them? Sorry there's no scale, the larger one is about 2cm, and the smaller about half a centimetre. I found them in Northamptonshire, UK. Thanks.

    Frechiella Subcarinate

    From the album: Bobby’s ammonites

    Frechiella Subcarinate Northamptonshire uk very rare but ugly! I do have a soft spot for it.

    Northampton Ammonites (U.K.)

    Hi guys, A friend of mine from work has recently found a field in the small village of Bugbrooke which is currently littered with ammonites eroding out of the surface- as he knows I'm studying Palaeontology next year for my masters he has decided to give a few to me to both prep and also try and identify. After a little inspection I was thinking that the ammonites he has provided me is most Lilkly Dactylioceras and Hildoceras. This would make sense as the local geology is Jurassic mudstones often capped by ironstone on top. Of course this is conjecture and ammonites are not my specialty.
