  1. Hi all! Have been out the past couple of weekends to my local sharks teeth spot - Bawdsey in Suffolk, the first three trips i spent on the first area of the beach directly below the red crag cliffs. Found a few but none of really any quality. Best one was a very pretty patterned Carcharocles auriculatus ? (Can anyone confirm?) seen in the first photo top left, and a very worn large tooth (seen in the second photo, looks a bit Meggy?) - I have no idea about species on this one! As well as the usual Carcharias hopei and Striatolamia macrota, a couple of fish verts, some seed pods and ray teeth. Had my most productive day ever yesterday though, after not finding to many previously in my usual spots, went to a spot slightly further along and ended up with 156 teeth in about two hours!! None that were out of the ordinary however just the usual species. Some kid on the beach who was also searching had a perfect Otodus, it must have been nearly 3 inches long!! I was rather jealous of him! Can anyone ID the larger tooth that is bottom left? Still after the 6 inch Meg from this spot! Thanks for reading!!!
  2. Bawdsey Trip - Tooth ID??

    Headed down to Bawdsey in Suffolk for a few hours. The beach has built up loads covering up the best big teeth grounds, still managed to find a few. Got the Striatolamia macrotas from the bottom of the shingle ridge and also a fish vertebra? (Can anyone confirm). The rest of the teeth were all from the red crag layer. Also found a possible cow shark tooth which i have never found! (Please say it is!!!) And some other fossil, i have found a lot of these previously but never as large. Apologies i cant take any better photos due to using my phone! If anyone can help with identifying these that would be marvellous! Thanks for reading guys and girls!
  3. Suffolk Tooth ID?

    Hi Guys and Girls. Going through some of my old teeth on the weekend and found the one below. Any ideas on what it is? Doesn't look like any shark tooth i have ever found from my usual sites. Thinking possibly fish? It is around 13mm long. Out of the thousands i have found over the years none are like this. Unfortunately, i am unsure of exactly where i got it, but would have been either the Rocks at Ramsholt (London Clay and Red Crag) or Bawdsey (London Clay and Red Crag) as these were the only two places i used to collect from. Have also included what i think is a Cosmopolitodus hastalis/ Carcharodon hastalis that i found a few months back at Bawdsey. If Mods want to edit photos to make brighter etc please do!! Thanks!!!!
  4. Red Crag Vertebra???

    My friend found this in the Red Crag at Bawdsey, Suffolk, unfortunately it fell apart upon retrieval. Is it a large fish Vertebra? Also found what looks like a small partial Meg down on the shingle, as well as a few other smaller teeth. I have also included a tooth that i found that is partially enclosed in rock, i have never found another like this. Any ideas on how it came to be?
  5. Eocene ID required

    Would anyone be able to ID these two finds from Ramsholt, Suffolk. The site is mostly made up of Eocene material from the London Clay beds & reworked Eocene in the Red Crag Miocene layer. The first looks like a dermal plate but I'm not sure & the second one I have no idea. Many thanks, Connah.
  6. Preserving fragile shells

    Yesterday I picked up several shells from the Red Crag formation at Walton on the Naze that are incredibly fragile. What is the best way to preserve them to keep them from falling apart? I already crumbled a few while rinsing them in water, I am hoping to keep the rest intact lol.
  7. Struggling to i.d. these two gastropods while rehousing them in a new box, this is the note that was left inside the original box by the owner of the fossils. Any help would be appreciated as to their identity.
  8. Hi, Had a family break at Waton on the Naze, Essex over the New Year period and spent 5 mornings combing the beach with the wife and kids. It was remarkably unproductive on most days (as well as freezing!) and so our usual haul was very much reduced. This is what we found: Glycymeris and a couple of Turritella - Red Crag A few nice examples of sharks teeth (striatolamia) - London Clay ..and my personal favourite, a piece of whale bone (balaena sp) from the unconformity between the Red Crag and London Clay. Apparently the waxy appearance is a giveaway but what causes it hasn't been explained to me. Hopefully we'll find a lot more next time.
  9. Walton on the Naze, Essex, UK

    Hi, Newbie to the forum but I've been picking up odd lumps of rock since I had fingers. I went to the beach with my wife and two kids on the 5th November and we had a productive day. Save for a few dog walkers we virtually had the beach to ourselves. We were there from just after low tide (9am) until the last moment when the sea was lapping at the steps (11:15) and as usual the girls had better eyes than me and my son. This is our trawl: Red Crag: Glycymeris: Neptunea, Oyster and a piece of broken bone (probably later): London Clay: Striatolamia plus an unconvincing core of a larger sharks tooth (I need to compare it to others I have but right now its hovering over the bin) Fossilised Wood (I love these as they are so well preserved but for some reason these are left in their 1000s strewn across the beach) (Much) Later: Lastly I'm including some things found that are a throw back to my Archaeology days. I'm putting these in the 'possible' category. The left hand flake shows signs of rework on the right edge. The second (on the right) is badly photographed but has all the elements that would describe it as a man made flake - at the top is a flat 'striking platform' and on the side facing us is a 'bowl of percussion'. I would love to find a finished tool that can occasionally be found here, That's it. A great morning fossicking, followed by a walk along the sea front and then down to the pier for 10 pin bowling with the family and wasting money on the pier amusement arcade!
