  1. I found these two fossils whilst searching in Whitby a few days ago and could do with some help identifying them. I’m not sure if one appears to be sections of an ammonite and I have no idea about the other.
  2. Here is a video i just uploaded of some of my very recent finds from the Yorkshire Coast. These finds are all unprepared currently and in the video showed as found. They will be completed very soon and should come out lovely The best finds are the articulated string of verts, and very nice looking section of Ichthyosaur Paddle. Hopefully you enjoy.
  3. Fossil fish fin?

    I found this fossil yesterday near Whitby at Runswick Bay. Ammonites and belemnites are common here in the Jurassic cliffs, but I also found this. I am unsure as to whether it may be part of a fish or something else entirely- can anyone help?
  4. Bone from near Whitby ID

    I found this fossil which looks like bone at Saltwick Bay, near Whitby on the Yorkshire Coast. I have been told it maybe ichthyosaur and someone said it maybe a fish bone from a Gyrosteus. Can anyone help me with an ID? The rocks where I found it are definitely Jurassic and I also found lots of ammonites and belemnites in the area. Thanks Holly
  5. Whitby finds

    Found these among other things in the Whitby area today. Everything we’ve found before today has been marine material from the Jurassic. Are they plant material or is such a thing not found here? We only kept the first specimen as the other was large and crumbly. Thank you for looking
  6. Whitby Vertebrae

    Just opened this nodule on a beach in the Whitby area, I can’t help thinking that it looks like a couple of verts, can anyone confirm this and maybe suggest a species? I’ll put better pics up when I get home if needed. Thank you for looking
  7. Whitby Coprolites

    We’ve seen a few of these things before in shale type rocks at Whitby, could they be coprolites? A couple of other finds from today too; a belemnite with pyrite phragmocone and a nice ammonite that I split
  8. Fossil Lobster

    Here's part of a upper lias fossil lobster, i found this at Whitby on the coast before the Covid lockdown earlier this year. I believe the species is Glyphea I do enjoy looking for fossil lobster nodules on the yorkshire coast in England so i'm trying to figure out exactly what i have here. I was told this is a left cephalothorax. So do i have a head and 2 front feet? Or is it the head from a side view. If any body can find any useful diagrams/pictures of what i have it'd be much appreciated. Thanks Liam
  9. Whitby Belemnites

    Found these Belemnites today on a beach in the Whitby area, is it possible to pin the larger one particularly down to an exact species? It’s now the best in my daughter’s collection as it’s got so much of the phragmocone still attached (albeit glued back in places) @TqB ? Thanks for looking
  10. Tiny Belemnite?

    Found this on a beach full of belemnites, however I’ve never seen one this small. Could this be a belemnite and if so would it have been a juvenile or a different species to the larger ones we normally find? Thank you for looking
  11. Whitby finds

    As we haven’t been able to get out to the coast collecting we’ve been going through my daughter’s collection and trying to label her finds in the same way as her fossils from various shops. Many have already been identified here, but here are a few that I was hoping to get help with. I know all but one are ammonites but I was hoping for more specific than that. All are from the stretch of Yorkshire coast from Staithes down to Saltwick Bay Thanks in advance
  12. Monster ammonite prep

    Once again I slack in posting things on here. last week I decided to dig out a very large ammonite I found last year. It’s a Phylloceras Heterophyllum. Quite rare around here, and to get one as big as this is, is even rarer. It weighed an absolute tonne but worth it. All the prep work is done, all that’s left now is to rebuild some small sections and cracks. It’ll be a stunning piece once’s finished.
  13. Whitby, ON Trilobites

    Took this opportunity to head to the shores of Lake Ontario in Whitby and find some trilobites, among other stuff! Edit: Kane corrected this - they're nautiloids. Cheers!
  14. This was on a larger block with burrows and I have chiseled it down. I found this on the Yorkshire Coast near Whitby in the sandstone beds where you can find trace fossils including dinosaur footprints. I’ve been told it’s a dinosaur footprint by some people and others burrow marks. Wondered what your thoughts were. thanks
  15. I decided to film one of my trips while collecting on the Yorkshire Coast near Whitby. I had some good finds Hope you enjoy.
  16. Whitby area sightings

    A couple of things that we saw on a beach near Whitby but didn’t bring home. The area was full of scallop type bivalves and a lot of belemnites. One section of the beach had a lot of what I have shown in the first picture, resembling tree roots or cables; am I right in thinking that these are trace fossils of some kind of burrows? And what Could the second item be? It was in a large boulder along side a few small belemnites and was about 5cm in diameter.
  17. A couple of our more unusual finds in the Whitby area today, can anyone identify the first couple of items? The larger one has the striped (pyrite?) effect on both sides. Also, is anyone seeing crinoid or similar in the last two pictures? Same side of rock from different angles.
  18. Whitby area

    This is like nothing I have seen before in the Whitby coast area, there are a few belemnites on the rock also, and lots of scallop type shells in the area. What could it be?
  19. Whitby area finds

    Went to a beach in the Whitby area today, it was very slim pickings until my daughter saw the first of these items shining amongst the rocks. I’m guessing some kind of pyrite bivalves? The second item is something I saw on our way off the beach, am I right in thinking they’re crinoid stem sections? Thanks in advance
  20. Fossil?

    My daughter and I explored a different beach in the Whitby area today, we brought home a good haul of ammonites, belemnites etc, but this caught my eye too. Are the pyrite shapes some kind of fossil or did some other process cause them?
  21. Christmas in Yorkshire

    Me and my family spent the Christmas week up in Yorkshire. They planned to do boring Christmas stuff and I would occupy myself by going fossil hunting or fishing. Whitby itself was gorgeous, with old buildings and plenty to do, as well as lots of fudge shops and freshly smoked kippers... The tides weren’t the best that week with high being around midday and small tides meaning fossil hunting time was limited most days. The closest beach - Sandsend was a five minute drive away. Tried here a couple of times and was rewarded with a few Dactylioceras and a nice Hildoceras which I’m hoping still has the centre. I had the most luck at Port Mulgrave which is about a twenty minute drive up the coast. Now where I live in Suffolk, there aren’t really any hills leading to the beach at all, it’s very flat. However, Port Mulgrave will sort out the physically fit from those who are not so fit. First of all you go down a muddy track with no grip, then you go down maybe 200 or so steps, then a muddy slope with a rope to hold onto where you are near enough abseiling and finally a muddy slope with no grip and taa daa your on the beach. Going to the left I found a nice plant imprint, a bi-valve of which species I do not know, and plenty of Dacts in nodules. To the right of the beach there were nodules everywhere. I must have got at least 50 nice ones as well as lots of broken ammos for the neighbours kids, a few pieces of Jet, Belemnite chunks were everywhere and I kept one nice one that was set in a bit of shale and I also found a couple of nice death blocks full of tiny ammonites. The walk back up the hill was a killer. I stopped three times and must have lost a kilogram through sweating. Overall I had a great week (apart from the fishing, it was rubbish) and now have a lot of ammos to prep.... Thanks for reading!
  22. Here's another for the Ichnofossil lovers amongst you. I love having a look though the sandstone as it can be quite a challenging to get your eye in as they're not always obvious at first look. I've been told by the local experts that the bigger is most likely from a small ornithopod. There appear to be a number of other single toe marks around the block and what looks like 3 claw marks to the right of the bigger print. So there must have been quite a few different dinosaurs moving through the area at the time.
  23. Stabilising Dinosaur Footprint

    Hello everyone, I have a question regarding stabilising sandstone to keep it from crumbling. Last year I found and extracted a dinosaur footprint from a block on the beach at Whitby, Yorkshire UK. The footprint is of an Aalenian age therapod from approximately 170 million years ago. The print itself measures 20cm from the base to the tip of the centre claw mark. I am hoping to get the block it is in cut down into a slab in order to frame it but now that it is dry the sandstone is very loose and crumbly. I am looking for something that will add strength to the stone and prevent crumbling without significantly changing the colour of the stone or adding a shiny finish as I would like the finished piece to remain as close as possible to how it was, just stronger. I was hoping somebody would have an idea what would be best to soak the block with in order to keep it from falling apart. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Benton Walters
  24. Whitby area find; Devils Toenail?

    As well as lots of the usual belemnites and ammonites, my daughter found this today on a beach in the Whitby area. It’s unlike anything we’ve found before; am I right in thinking it’s a ‘devil’s toenail’ (gryphaea?)
  25. A video I made showing some of my finds from Summer. Hopefully you enjoy. Collected near Whitby.
