  1. planning ahead for a trip in the UK

    Natalie and I are planning our holiday to the UK, We are planning to reside from saturday 20 july to 24 july on the isle of Wight were we went last year. And from the 25th until the 28th we are planning to do either the coast of Sussex or Dorset. This is where the advise of the TFF members come in, what would you advise us to visit, either Dorset or Sussex. Of course if any member is free on one of those dates and is willing to guide us around this would be even better. We also take a bunch of Belgian fossils along for possible trades. (we are especially interested in cephalopods and marine reptiles/dinosaurs ) Cheers Kevin and Natalie

  6. Gastropudding

    I've mentioned in past threads that I occasionally do some prep work for a British paleontologist who hasn't the time to do the work himself. He always sends along some raw material from mostly southern English sites in exchange for the job. He knows that I like gastropods, so this time he included a nice rock, chock-a-block with various Pyrgotrochus species. Sort of like raisins in cookie dough. I didn't think (as often the case) to make a "before" photo, but I can at least show you the final result, with which I'm very pleased. 7 samples of Pyrgotrochus bessinus and P.macrocephali in a block 17x11x10cm. in size out of the sauzei zone, Early Bajocian from the region around Sherborne, Dorset.

  9. Ichthyosaur Paddle

    Hello, this is my first post Just wanted to share my most recent find from the Jurassic coast of Charmouth, Dorset UK. I found this pebble with what appeared to be bone, had it prepped and it has turned into an ichthyosaur paddle with ribs/gastralia and a couple ammonites! Best regards, Kam
  10. Ringstead Bay Dorset find

    Any idea what this might be? Looks like it maybe some sort of tooth ? Shame it's missing the tip.

  19. Can anybody identify this fragment I found at Ringstead Bay, Dorset, UK a few years back? I thought originally it was either a piece of bone or ammonite fragment, any advice would be much appreciated. The location is along the Jurassic Coast and would assume it was Jurassic in age.
  20. White Nothe, Dorset. Ammonite ID.

    Sorry for the thread hijack but I thought some of the posters might be able to help me out. I found this ammonite at White Nothe in Dorset. I thought it was upper greensand initially. I now think it's chalk but I've no idea on which layer it might be from. I know there's little to go by from the photos but can anyone give an ID or information? I thought possibly mammites or acanthoceras but I usually only collect the lower Jurassic so this is all new to me! Cheers, Matt
  21. Lyme Regis Trip

    Firstly apologies for the lateness of this post, spent a week down in Lyme Regis from the 17th of December. Was out most evenings and some mornings due to the tide times, however i found hunting at night just as productive and with a lot less competition! The weather had been incredibly rough and was a bit unsettling at night when you could hear parts of the cliff falling down! The first few nights i mainly found ammonites and a few pieces of rolled bone (no photos of these, can put some up if anyone wishes me too) Best find was a partial ichthyosaur rostrum from below the Black Ven. Unfortunately no teeth and it has been very well rolled! None the less i was most pleased to find it. Found a couple more nice sized ammonites covered in pyrite and one well worn vertebra. See attached images. If anyone would like anymore photos please do not hesitate to ask. All in all a good week. Thanks for reading.
  22. Lyme regis vs Charmouth

    Some of you have probably heard of Lyme Regis in Dorset but less of you have heard of Charmouth(the coastline east of Lyme Regis). This topic will cover which one is better for fossil hunting. In Charmouth the common fossils are fools gold ammonites(which can be picked up just by walking along the beach),belemnites, beef rock ammonites, coprolites(most unidentifiable), random marine reptile bone fragments(usually ichthyosaur). The rarer Charmouth fossils are complete marine reptile bones. The incredibly rare fossils are Scelidosaurus(a primitive armoured dinosaur) bones. In Lyme regis the remains are almost the same but no Scelidosaurus and instead there is a possible species of Megalosaurus and rare sea urchins(these might also be in Charmouth). Unlike Charmouth the "common fossils" are not so common. My opinion is that Charmouth is better. But I am interested to hear other opinions. PS- Sorry for the lack of pictures and the large amount of brackets.
