  1. A video I made showing some of my finds from Summer. Hopefully you enjoy. Collected near Whitby.
  2. I am lucky enough to have permission to collect fossils at an old coal mining tip in West Yorkshire, UK. The site is now a woods, but pieces of shale can be found, containing upper Carboniferous fish fossils including sharks and Rhizodonts. At this time of year, collecting is difficult due to the leafs which cover the shale. The vast majority of the shale comes from a mussel band, which as the name suggests, contains abundant bivalves, but generally the fish remains are very small. The exceptions to this are blocks of the mussel band which contain orange coloured bivalves. These blocks seem to contain larger fish remains. However, there is generally no one rock type which is better than the others at this site. To ensure I don't cause any disturbance to wildlife, I don't do any hammering at the site. Instead, I collect promising shale samples and split them at home in search of fossils. When choosing which shale samples to collect, I look for shale samples with a relatively high grain size. I have not split the shale samples yet, but the following posts will contain photos of the site, and two fossils I found at the site today. If I find any good fossils in the samples, I will post pictures on here.
  3. "I've Got the Snitch" Fossil hunter finds 185-million-year-old ‘golden snitch’ with ancient sea creature inside Charlotte Edwards, Digital Technology and Science Reporter, Nov. 18, 2019, https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/10369483/golden-snitch-fossil-yorkshire/ Yours, Paul H.
  4. Here is a large crocodile block which I would like to trade in return for an upper Carboniferous British fossil. I found it at Mappleton, which is part of the Holderness coast, UK. This is by quite some distance the best crocodile fossil I have seen from the Holderness coast, and one of the best I have seen from any part of Yorkshire. I collect mainly Carboniferous fossils, and therefore although it is one of the rarest fossils I have in my collection, I have decided I would like to trade it for something Carboniferous. 22 large bones/skutes are visible on the sides, with a few smaller ones. Most of the remains exposed at the sides seem to be skutes, but there are also what appear to be ribs, a large object which may be a skute but I think it’s another type of bone, and what I think may be a limb bone (visible on last photo). As fossils got to the Holderness coast by glaciers, it’s exact geological origin is uncertain, but I strongly suspect it is from the Lias of North Yorkshire. Due to the very large size of the object, I can only trade it within the UK. Thanks, Daniel Wilby
  5. Fossil or Rock?

    Is this a fossil or just a rock embedded in shale? Found it on the beach in Runswick Bay, North Yorkshire. Any help would be much appreciated!
  6. Wood? Bone? Fossil walkie talkie?

    Hello there all! I picked this oddity up last weekend. Since then I've been staring at it and... well... I can't make head nor tails of it. Seems to be soooomething? Found on the Yorkshire coast, along ice age clay cliffs
  7. Coral with odd-boy?

    Hello again! I found this lovely lump of coral today, but it seems to have a bonus weird-boy sticking out of it! Firstly, any idea what kind of coral this is? Rugosa? But then - any idea what the bonus weird thing is? Haha Thank you very much! I'm learning so much from y'all!
  8. Vertebrae ID please

    Hi, This is my first reptile skeletal find, and I'm absolutely thrilled, especially since I didn't expect to find much at the end of the summer. It's from between staithes and mulgrave. I know they're vertebrae X2, however I'm not sure what exactly. They're also in amongst what could be other bits of bone, the top bit looks like some hard outer exoskeleton (scales/shell?) Although it could equally just be the mudstone concretion. Any ideas?
  9. Carboniferous millipede?

    I found this in a coal mining tip in South Yorkshire (UK). It is upper Carboniferous aged. Can anyone identify it please? The only possibility I can think of is millipede. It measures around 1 inch. Thanks, Daniel
  10. The species Hildoceras are a relatively common ammonite along the Yorkshire coast, they were my favourite when I first started collecting, and can range from all sorts of sizes. I have ones that are less than an inch, to 6 inches, though there are people who have found 9 inch monsters. Usually, they’re found solitary in rounded nodules and that’s about it, so last year when I found a nodule that looked like a double I was thrilled! As per, the block was covered in horrible pyrite, making prep a pain in the butt. I finally finished it recently and it’s a beauty. Some really odd colours amongst the pyrite that I can’t say I have ever come across. This one now proudly sits in my collection.
  11. I recently found a rather large Dactylioceras ammonite from Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire UK. If measures around 4.2 inches which is pretty big for the species, although iv seen bigger. It was a reasonably easy prep and the matrix pulled away like it was nothing. Unfortunately there’s a small section missing from the outer whorl, either predation, or compression from fossilisation caused this. Still a lovely specimen. I’ll be posting plenty more soon, Iv been concentrating on building an online store and constantly prepping over the past few months so hardly find the time along with work. Thanks. Dan.
  12. Ovaticeras

    From the album Yorkshire Ammonites

    A largely sized rare Ovaticeras ammonite I found on the Yorkshire Coast. Prepped by my friend @DanJeavs
  13. Whitby Area finds

    Had a couple of hours on a beach in the Whitby area today but tides weren’t favourable. Along with a load of the usual Belemnites, Ammonites and Bivalves I also found these and was wondering A) is the item in pictures 1 & 2 a piece of amber that has been roughed up by the sea? I have heard of people ffinding amber here but am yet to see any. B ) What is the item in the third picture? thanks
  14. Top of a long bone?

    Hello again! I also found this yesterday It was weathering out of the ice age clay along the Yorkshire coast. Definitely rock and as I've cleaned the clay off it's resembling bone - but I'm a totes newbie, so it could well be a geologic quirk! What are your thoughts? Once again! Thank you for the advice! This forum is awesome.
  15. Ooo... is dis bone?!

    Hello - l just found this amongst the loose rocks on the beach. It's a small village on the coast of Yorkshire. And isn't accessible except by scaling the cliff or walking a few miles along the beach. The cliffs here are made of clay deposited during the last ice age clay - so they're a real mix of rock types. This block was pre broken. I saw some light shapes on the reverse and found these when I flipped it over. I want to believe these are vertebrae so bad! But I turn to the immense collective knowledge of the fossil forum What have I got here?
  16. Runswick Bay to Kettleness find

    Had a walk from Runswick Bay to Kettleness and back yesterday, found some nice ammonites, a few belemnites, bivalves etc. Not sure what this is, if anything. Is anyone able to identify it from the pictures? For those unfamiliar with the area it’s close to Whitby, an area known for Jurassic marine fossils
  17. Found today on the English Yorkshire Coast ( Runswick bay). At first i thought it was maybe layers of a type of fossilised plant but I cant find anything to match the markings on this. Completely baffled by it. Looks very cool though. ID help, please?
