  1. Hi all and Seasons Greetings I was wondering if you may be able to give me a clue as to what I found about 5 years ago on a beach in North Yorkshire....not too far away from the beautiful town of Whitby. I was mooching around the rocks at the bottom of the cliff when I came across a 'cluster' of 5 egg shaped stones....I removed just one of the 'eggs' and it now sits proudly on my desk. The flat area that can be seen in the first and second photos is where the item was resting against another in the cluster. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone Kind regards Bob........(Nobby)
  2. Whitby area find; bone?

    Just found this at the base of a scree slope somewhere between Runswick Bay and Sandsend (too excited to wait until I’m home to take pictures with a ruler, sorry ) Pretty sure it looks like bone of some sort; can anyone confirm this and maybe identify it? Thanks for looking
  3. Whitby area find

    Whilst on a long walk today in the Runswick Bay area looking for ammonites to practice my new air pen on, my daughter picked this up and commented that ‘it looks like poo’ (as most nine year olds probably would) As I could offer no other identification for it I thought I’d ask here. There are also a couple of bivalves or similar to the side of it. Thank you for looking
  4. Hi everyone, hopefully someone may be able to help. We went to Runswick Bay in North Yorkshire, UK today (my personal favourite place to look for Fossils!). I'm a VERY casual collector and an absolute amateur at it to boot. Our dog is also blind so half the time I'm making sure he's walking okay and he isn't falling over things so I don't get to properly roam like I used to. Anyway, amongst picking up an almost complete Belemite, a Belemite fragment and some Ammonite fragments and prints, I also picked up 5 rocks that I've no idea what they are but thought they were curious. One of them I'm almost certain is a fossil, it's the grey one that has a little peak top that's almost gold (which doesn't show well in the photo but in the right light, it has a gold shine to) but I don't know what it's a fossil of. I'm assuming some sort of crustacean. It's a shame I can't prep it as I'm sure it would reveal something or other. That said, it's also possible it's just a fancy piece of rock. The other 4, I've no idea what they are. I've most likely just got a pile of 4/5 interesting looking rocks which, if they are, is still cool. I tend to use them to decorate the edge of my patio pond (the fossils that aren't that perfect or ones I've brought home and then on closer inspection, realised its just a rock, ha!) I read the rules on taking photos of the fossils and have taken an awful lot of each of the 5, so here's a link to my Google Album with them all in. I've made the album so people should be able to view the photos. Tried taking from various angles etc. As there's a lot of each one, I don't suppose I'll get many/any replies but I figured this would be the best place where I MIGHT find someone who can tell me for sure if I have anything interesting or just some neat looking rocks. There's also one of our dog in there for cuteness. As we were walking back from the fossil area we tend to sit around and root for fossils, he went into cracker dog and had just dug some holes in the sand!! https://photos.app.goo.gl/dXLFRusYfRdwACco9
  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 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. 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?)
  14. Fossil ID

    Hi, we visited Port Mulgrave last weekend as I did about 10 years ago and was wondering if the protrusions in the bed rock were bones and if anyone can recognise what they are. I got a glimpse of what the inside looked like could it be fossilised marrowbone?
  15. Saltwick, N. Yorkshire, England

    Saltwick Bay Field Trip, sitting down on the shingle to have a bite to eat, looking down at the pebbles around me as I always do, just in case, you never know. Noticed a pebble with a slight nick in it and thought 'I wonder if I bash it will there be anything inside' Well I did and this is what I found. If I remember correctly I was told it was Jurassic and a Pseudoglyphea lobster leg. One day I may try to prep it but matrix really hard. 1 - pebble 2 - One side of inside 3 - The other side of inside 4 - Close up of part of leg showing spines on leg, some of the blue surface still there. 5 - Close up including what I think is a joint. PS. I thought I had posted this the other day but it popped up when I tried to list another post, no pictures so hopefully this is going to appear and I have not done it twice.
  16. Hi, after beach combing along the North Yorkshire coast I found a rather large fossil. During another trip I found a smaller fossil and several types of stone, not sure what any of them are as I am a total novice. Would really appreciate any advice. Many thanks.
