  1. Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk. This time we had better luck, and we found lots of them and even a few nautiluses. There was a sealion in the water not far from where we were prospecting, but since it was yawning a lot I don't think he was very interested in our activities Day 3 was a stop in Yaverland, here we found some hybodont remains and a possible pterosaur tooth ( we will know for sure after the prep ), in the afternoon we went a bit further to Whiteclif bay where we found a few echinoids. Day 4 Back to those Wealden cliffs in search for dinosaur material, again in vain, but we did se al those impresive Iguanodon foottracks at Hanover point. later on the day we tried to find the lobster bed near Atherfield, but only a few parts were accesible, but I found a nice big lobster in situ, it came out in a few pieces. I had super glue in my backpack, so I glued the parts back together and stuffed the fossil safely away in a box with soft paper. It is still in that box now, so I hope it wil still be ok when I start prepping it. Day 5: we had a meetup with a local colector to prospect the beaches on the north of the island, those were Oligocene deposits and we did find a lot of turtle fragments, a few croc scutes and even a few croc teeth Day 6: we had our ferry back to the mainland of the UK, from there we drove further to the jurassic coast. In the afternoon we went on the Beach between Dorset and Lyme Regis, but the beaches were full of tourists looking for fossils, so the finds were poor. Day 7: we visited Eype, and Golden cap, not far from Dorset, again verry few finds due to overprospected beaches, but we did find a decent ammonite. In the evening We visited the town of Lyme Regis and the birthplace of Mary Anning Day 8: this time e went east of Dorset, still very few fossils to be seen, but still multiple good belemnites , some of them still in the matrix. Day 9: time to pack the tent and drive back to Dover, we still had time before taking our ferry back to France so we did a quick stop in Folkestone. 2 hours of prospecting in the gault clay did deliver 2 decent ammonites and lots of ammonite fragments, belemnites and inoceramus shells. I didnt take a lot of pictures of the fossils we found yet, but we took a few ones in the field. more pictures will follow when we start unpacking and prepping the fossils from this week. Shipping to Dover: vieuw on the camping from Wight: of to the beach: no fossils to be seen Lots of beach to prospect: Still looking for bone in the shingle: sunset on Wight: to the cenomanian chalk: ammonites the Sealion: possible pterosaur tooth: footprints Oligoceene deposits: A vieuw on Wight before we leave: Dorset and Lyme regis: Ammonites everywhere Mary Anning:
  2. Ammonites from Folkestone ID help

    Hi all, got some ammonites here that I desperately need help identifying! They are all from Folkestone, Kent from the Gault Clay of the lower cretaceous. There are also a few gastropods that I can't ID either. Thanks in advance for your help!
  3. Trip to Folkestone

    Hi all, went to Folkestone, Kent a few weeks ago for the first time and came back with a pretty decent haul of ammonites (a lot of fragments and a fair few completes) as well as bivalves and gastropods. I think some of my finds are pretty cool so thought I'd share them with you all. I'll include my IDs but please bear with me as I am quite new to this and have certainly got some (if not most) of them wrong - so please chime in with suggestions and answers! all are from the Gault Clay, early cretaceous (Albian).anahoplites sp.anahoplites sp.no idea what these two are, as you can see they are very squashed and thin. Euhoplites sp.Eoscaphites subcircularis
  4. Hi all, I found this scaly looking rock at Folkestone, UK. Looks to be from the greensand. Any guesses as to what it could be? Thanks. Jay
  5. Tooth? From Folkestone UK

    Hi guys, I found this along with a lot of belemnites at Folkestone Warren, UK. It looks like some sort of tooth but I'm not sure. It measures 1.2cm/0.5" long and has an almost rectangular cross section. Any ideas? Jay
  6. Hi all, I found these rocks around Copt Point at Folkestone, UK and was wondering what they could be. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jay
  7. A while ago I bought this tiny gault clay ammonite preserved in pyrite and in a few months of storage next to dessicant mineral these strange white crystals have grown. -pyrite disease?
  8. Birostrina sulcata? Folkestone, UK find

    Hey everyone, I was hoping one of you fine peoples could help confirm or deny the ID of these specimens I brought home from Folkestone, UK. They are very water worn and mostly broken, but I’ve seen them in videos of Folkestone fossil hunting and they look a lot like Birostrina sulcata. Any help is greatly appreciated. First photo is mine, the other two are example photos I found.
  9. Folkestone, UK trip advice

    Hey everyone! My son and I are heading to Folkestone (and possibly Herne Bay if we have time) tomorrow to do some fossil hunting. I’ve heard that Copt Point is the place to go to look. Does anyone have any tips or advice before we go tomorrow? I’ve already checked tide times and have planned most of the trip around it. Thanks!
  10. I've just come back from a lovely fossil hunting trip in Folkestone! Here's what we found *unpreped* in 3 hours: Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, i'll post more photos when they're clean!
  11. Possible Bone Fossil, Folkestone UK

    Hello, I found this yesterday in Folkestone and was wondering if anyone can help identify whether or not it is a fossil. It is 11cm long, 4 cm wide. It seems to be fully mineralised, it pings like flint when knocked on something hard. Thanks
  12. Hello all! Does anyone have detailed tips that they can share with me? I plan to go Folkestone and Samphire Hoe to find fossils. I googled, and there's plenty of ammonites in those places. So, if anyone has good tips to share with me, please do, as I hope that I do not waste any time and effort looking for fossils when I am there. Replies are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Folkestone Uk Ammonite And Others

    Hi Everyone, This is my first ever post, and I just wanted to let you all know that I am new to fossil hunting, but enjoy it very much. It is quite difficult for me to do on a regular basis as I live in an area of Australia that has very few interesting geological deposits, and is very low in available fossils. On a recent trip to the Uk I visited Folkestone, but as it was the middle of summer at the time, there was very little recent exposure at the base of the cliffs due to lack of rainfall. I know nothing I found here is particularly impressive, but I would love to know exactly what they are. They were all found in the Gualt Clay or on the foreshore. I'm thinking the Ammonite could be either a Euhoplites lautus or an ahoplites planus. It is around 2.3cm in diameter. The first Belemnite Guard is almost exactly 3cm in length. The small belemnite is 2cm. I think it is a Neohibolite. Finally, a tiny ammonite. It is only around 0.8cm in diameter. I found a few of these. I can take more photos in better lighting if needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Alice
