  1. Hello, I was wondering how swell effects fossil hunting on the coastal locations This week seems to look really good for it?
  2. My ichthyosaur paddle section has just come back from prep. i am waiting on another similar sized paddle section from the same Ichthyosaur which is being prepped, will look great together even though they wont fit. Here are the pictures, i think it looks stunning!
  3. Eleganticeras Multiblock

    A few months back, I spent three days along the Whitby coastline. It was a very good three days of collecting, but my last find of them days, is to this day my best find. I had decided to head to Runswick Bay. My legs and back were exhausted, so decided the short walk to to car park would be fairly light on the legs. Now, in my experience, Runswick hasn’t really produced much in the past for me, so I hadn’t gotten my hopes up too much. So you can imagine my shock, when I see a rather large nodule day there in Situ. I’ll let the pictures say the rest
  4. It’s been a long time since I posted here. So here’s a thanks to everybody that’s helped me out in the past on here. It’s seriously appreciated. So. Here’s a lovely 6 inch Hildoceras I found recently at Kettleness, I’m the Yorkshire coast. She’s a beauty. A few of the outer whorl chambers are a little crush, but it just adds to the piece of think
  5. Tree?

    Hi I got this from a minor who found it 3000ft down in a mine in Yorkshire UK. He thought it may be part of a tree but wasn't 100%. Can anyone help identify this? Thanks
  6. Suspected modern bone

    While i was on the beach today near whitby i found this bone. I didnt bother taking it because i’m sure its modern, but i’m still curious. Is it a chicken leg bone from someones bbq?
  7. Thinking of popping up to Whitby or Scarborough next week although the conditions for finds I'm assuming haven't been great given the serene conditions down south. How have conditions been on the Yorkshire coast?
  8. Leeds man finds 140,000-year-old walrus skull while fossil hunting on Yorkshire clifftop, Yorkshire Post https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/leeds-man-finds-140-000-year-old-walrus-skull-while-fossil-hunting-on-yorkshire-clifftop-1-9266896 Yours, Paul H.
  9. Megaonychites, form genus for the giant hooks that some belemnites have been shown to carry as a pair. By analogy with modern coleoids, they were probably carried by the males and used as mating claspers. This is a fairly large one at 3.4cm (the range is 0.5cm to about 4cm). It most likely belonged to a large Acrocoelites trisulculosus, by far the most common belemnite in these beds. Very rare in the UK but more frequent in the equivalent Holzmaden Posidonienschiefer. I've only seen one other from here - a partial - and that was mine until I gave it away thinking at the time it was a fish bone. (It was a long time ago... ). A recent acquisition from the usual auction site. (Found by a knowledgeable friend so the stratigraphy is good.) Mulgrave Formation ("Jet Rock"), Toarcian Stage, Lower Jurassic, near Whitby, Yorkshire, UK.
  10. Bone?

    Can someone tell me if i just found my first yorkshire bone?
  11. Worn ammonite whorl?

    This caught my eye today. It's probably just a very worn ammonite section, but i picked it up just incase.
  12. Please could anyone suggest what this is? I'm assuming fish, with little (less than 1mm) white spherules that might be teeth or denticles. From the Jet Rock (Mulgrave Shale Member) - a Lower Jurassic, Toarcian shale at least partly deposited in anoxic waters. Near Whitby, Yorkshire, UK. (Acquired in an auction as an extra with another fossil that I really wanted so I'm just curious really, I know little about fish!)
  13. Belemnite Phragmocone

    Is this a belemnite phragmocone? I found this today in yorkshire.
  14. Just got back from a week fossil hunting trip in North Yorkshire. It's fair to say it was pretty productive! Lots of nodules still need to be popped open!
  15. Today i visited saltwick bay, the beach right next to famous Whitby. I parked at the holiday park at the top, had a cup of tea and made my way down the steep steps. The beach is great, good for dog walking and fossil collecting! The cliffs are massive and the pictures do not do it justice to show how large they are. It is also constantly eroding even while i was stood there. So it’s probably wise to spend as little time under them as possible. It’s rarther scary really. I had lots of great finds, my favorite find of the day is the hildoceras on the left. Others included multiple ammonite nodules and a Belemnite phragmocone. Another great place to come if you’re in the area!
  16. Today i finally visited port mulgrave. It was wet, sludgy and foggy. I had looked forward to visiting this place for ages. I parked at the top and then begun the long slippery climb down. The ladders are pretty steep and it’s a long, wet climb down but it’s worth it for crazy fossil hunters like us. Once at the bottom and you climb down the ladder to the beach ammonites are everywhere, i found two right next to each other (bottom left picture). I was very pleased to find a good belemnite and it came out without breaking! It seems you’ll always find things here, But the hardest part is getting back up the cliff with a bag full of fossils. Here are my finds from today! A very productive site! Thanks for reading
  17. Today i visited runswick bay. I’ve been to this beach before and it’s lovely. There is a nice big car park, toilets and a cafe for a cuppa. These photos show the view from near the car park. When we arrived there wasnt many people on the beach but it soon got busier and the car park was near full when we left. Sadly i didnt find very many fossils but i did find two dacs. We met a photographer down on the beach who didnt have much luck finding anything so we gave the bottom ammonite to give to his young son. Another great, dry day. Still looking for my first reptile find though.
  18. Sandsend, Yorkshire

    I decided to have a steady walk to sandsend today. There is a large carpark and then we walked towards the left up some steps. If you want a sandy beach you can go to the right (no fossils here though) After a 15 minute walk you come to an old tunnel (bottom right) You do not go through the tunnel and go down the steps on your right. (Top) near the bottom these steps are very steep espeically with a bag full of fossils. Once on the beach i spent a good few hours looking around. The only people i saw on the beach were fossil hunters, others just go to the easy access sandy beach i think I found alot of bone or wood? Maybe you guys can tell me if any is bone. I found lots of nodules, but they are very hard and I had no good breaks on the beach. But notice the nodule on the left, hopfully its a nice one. The little ammonite on the top right is on a nice nodule also. Overall a great day out, and the rain stayed off until i left!
  19. Possible coral fossil?

    I’m on a fossil hunting trip and have arrived at my wondeful cottage in the north yorkshire country side. Today has been my travel day to the location so no fossil hunting sites have been visited. But my cottage has lots of different stones outside similar to this, probably brought from elsewhere. is it a coral?
  20. Yorkshire Tide

    I'm heading to Whitby tomorrow for a week of relaxation and fossil hunting around the multiple beaches. Is it recommended to arrive an hour after low tide? I'll be spending 3-4 hours each day there max. I don't want to waste time waiting for the tide to go back out before i start collecting if possible.
  21. Are these IDs correct?

    I just got all these fossils in bulk and was wondering if these IDs are correct. Sorry for the long post. The IDs came mixed up so please correct me if you see any that are wrong. All collected in Yorkshire. Hildoceras Bifrons with shell structure showing? Hildoceras Bifrons on a small nodule Hildoceras Bifrons with some pyrite. Arnioceras Block Catacoeloceras Grammoceras Large Repaired Pseudoloceras Pos and Neg X2 Eleganticeras Androgynoceras Boneblock with Ichthyosaur ribs and verts on the side.
  22. Hi all, Is this a shark tooth? I found it in the red chalk at Speeton, Yorkshire. It’s about 1cm in length. Thanks! Gillian
  23. Hi all, Can anyone help me identify these belemnites from Speeton? They were found in the rare Kimmeridge Clay beach exposures, all in situ. The first is a stunner at 19cm long and has no distinguishing features. The second is about 12.5cm long and has a deep groove running from the tip to about halfway - is this cylindroteuthis? The third is smaller, at 8cm long, and you can just make out a similar groove (but shallower) down half of its length from the tip. Many thanks! Gillian
  24. Bone ID from Speeton, Yorkshire

    Hi all, Was wondering if anyone could help identify this from Speeton. I’m pretty sure it’s a chunk of partially pyratised bone. It was found lying on top of the Kimmeridge Clay beach exposures (but not directly in the clay, so i guess it could have washed up from anywhere). Could it be from an ichthyosaur or plesiosaur? Would love to know roughly what sort of bone it is. It’s longest side is about 5.5cm in length. Would very much appreciate any help with identifying this. Many thanks! Gillian
