Will's summer 2021


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I’ve been doing a bit of hunting this summer and thought some of you might like to see what I have found :)   , this trip report is mostly going to focus on finds as in the moment, I wasn’t great at taking photos:P now I’m not very organised so we aren’t doing this in a chronological order, I’m just going to describe each site separately  :) the bulk of my hunting occurred on the Isle of Wight, so it is only natural that we start there,

I’m going to start with one of the less interesting sites, whale chine

(an image from the internet)

, I stopped here on the way to the needles for an hour and a half, so not long enough to find much. the beach wasn’t scoured so the famous lobster beds were not exposed and I went in not expecting to find much, this was correct but I loved the scenery :) I started by finding the bone bed that crops up here and at yaverland( I had had success at yaverland before this trip) as this wasn’t so dependant on a good tide, this material is made up of oysters and is supposed to constrain a lot of vertebrate remains. :) however, I found it far less productive than yaverland so after an hour of splitting bonebed, I checked out some lower greensand boulders, which were rich in shells and other fossils which I mostly left there for others to see. ;) 

Anyway onto the finds this pictures spans about 60 cm, sorry for lack of scale

1. corals from the greensand boulders, any IDs are welcome 8F2AC852-6087-4A87-A552-549A0121F5AD.thumb.jpeg.70ac2ed2af08ed84b323cef7e74c1174.jpeg

2. Various fish scales from the bonebed

3. a tooth leading into both sides of a rock, requires prep

4. a strange tooth in a different type of material, i am dissolving some of this to see if it is dense with vertebrate remains

5. A hybodont fin spine in cross section ( I have both sides so requires prep)

6. Ignore, it’s a tooth from yaverland

7. a strange tooth in cross section, not sure what I’m going to do with this :)

8. A croc tooth, very well preserved, needs some prep though,

Anyway I’ll check in with more as we continue through the summer, I might want to get some pieces prepped and I am prepping some myself ;) 

hope you all have a great summer

Very nice. 

The first coral is Holocystis elegans, or at least it was back in the day. Dunno about the second one.

I always loved collecting on the Isle of Wight, it's such a beautiful place with amazing beaches and friendly people. 

Happy days.

Life's Good!

thanks Adam, i agree the IOW was amazing, funnily enough, talking about friendly people, i did end up talking to someone on that beach who dives for treasure for a living, i found if you started talking around then almost everyone ha an interesting story :)

Ok we’re going earlier back into the summer, in early June, I visited the cretaceous white and grey chalk of sunny eastebourne ;) 

the scenery was great as usual

immediately as I got onto the beach there were large boulders of coral colonies

and soon I found a fossilised car,

as I walked further on, more fossils popped up in boulders and in the scree slopes (i didn’t collect the Ammonite as I felt others would like to see it :) )

i found one great echinoid but it was holding the cliff up so I let it be ;)

eventually I found some lovely fish bits

and hammered an echinoid loose (preservation was a bit rubbish though as it was in the grey chalk)

means there were plenty of nice minerals, I took one pyrite sun home

and finally some of the shell finds (and the echinoid)

I prepped them up :)

And why not do Yarmouth while I’m at it ;) 

this is the Oligocene Hampstead and bouldnor fm.I have posted some bits in the ID section so I don’t know what everything is but I can’t wait to post them :P

 

The beach was very covered in sea weed and multiple sets of footprints showed me someone had got there before me but nevertheless the fallen trees provided a good area to hunt under where no one else had so I found a few bits ;) 

the obligatory scenery photos of course, not quite so beautiful haha

i started off the day with what I thought was a croc tooth, but it turned out to be just a very deceptively shaped piece of wood, darn!ABD2B9E4-211F-4FD5-BAB1-0AA3B65E7B39.thumb.jpeg.64be3e477c4cdfe0801674d364476d08.jpeg

 I found a lot of the usual emys and trionyx turtle shell

and Quite a lot of unidentifiable bone fragments75643E1B-D656-4C22-BD38-157112E21B70.thumb.jpeg.4693909ec0fbaac51eeb68788d506e8a.jpeg

then I found my first decent few bits, 2 fish verts BCF3784D-84B7-449B-B373-8C62CB41F976.thumb.jpeg.15416b5a8ed1a7075e2670bd05e8fb5f.jpeg

soon after a potential croc scute, this is weird though so I’m not sure ;)

and soon afterwards a tiny rooted croc tooth

there were a few more fish bits

ome interesting thing that crops up here is an ancient forest that comes out of the foreshore, I found a  pine cone in this, they aren’t mineralised but are still cool :)

around this forest, one of the best finds of the day, a bothriodon tooth, spot it in the gravel!

And there was another within 10 metres

here are the 2 :)

there was also a skull element nearby :)

Then a tiny bit of croc jaw

And a weird flint fossil

followed by the best find of the day, a large piece of croc jaw

Another trip from my time on the Isle of Wight :) 

on the second day, the morning was free and it was high tide so I figured we could visit an inland locality, the only place I could find was bembridge quarry, it is known to be very hard to find fossils here, the exposure is limited, doesn’t get replenished as it doesn’t erode really and the chalk there isn’t particularly rich.

however I thought it was worth checking out :) I did check the entire site very thoroughly though so I don’t think there will be many fossils there for a while haha

anyway some pics of the site

all the finds (a pretty decent haul :) )

Good stuff! The Diplocynodon (croc) jaw is very nice. Decent size too. Glad you also found some anthracothere teeth.

3 days i ago I visited herne bay for a nice low tide visit :) as it turns out, the site is very heavily silted at the moment so finds were very limited but still it was a lovely evening!

When I was waiting for the tide to retreat I walked down the beach to where the Thanet formation is sometimes exposed, on my way there I found these strange traces in the sand, dogfish? 8F40894B-C8AF-40B3-A5A9-307EDF3D0D85.thumb.jpeg.067ab924711f64ed459846343f608d5f.jpeg10FFDA90-1E2E-47C1-9499-1E12C4BE9B2E.thumb.jpeg.bf13b44192f6157116b16426c6a25ccb.jpeg
further on I found some exposures and collected two bivalves, cleaned and stabilised them :)

seeing as the site was heavily silted (around 6inches) I mostly sieved for fossils when I made it back to the area where the beltinge fish bed normally is057034DB-1359-4D55-8E3B-98AA3EE156A5.thumb.jpeg.234e4849efae2a5ca5fa86499b5187a4.jpeg

I found a few bits, which I mostly gave to  another family who were hunting there as well :)

it got quite dark, so I started collecting gravel to take home, I collected about a kilo in total of varying sizes before heading home ;)

at home I sorted the gravel and my finds, this is the result (a lot worse than usual!)

1. broken teeth

3. this tooth is unique as it’s from the oldhaven formation, which is why it’s red, you don’t normally find these

6. Odontaspis winkleri ( actually fairly rare, differentiated from paleohypotodus rutoti by the lack of wrinkles at the base of the blade)

Not much love for that post ! :P 

maybe this one will generate some attention, early this morning I set off down to bracklesham bay to look for some lutetian fossils!

found some decent bits considering it’s summer (less erosion and more hunting)

Beautiful morning

Nice finds. Some of these fish pieces look like Cylindracathus.

Looks like you've had a fun summer, you certainly manage to get around a lot. I'm actually going to the IOW for the first time in a couple of weeks so have enjoyed your post. Currently creating an itinerary of all the spots I want to visit in the four days we've got on the island. May have to figure out a way to get to Bracklesham Bay on the way down, I've been wanting to visit for a long time.

Glad you liked my report! The IOW is an amazing place so I’m sure you will enjoy it! ;) the place I’d recommend the most is yaverland! Just make sure you have a hefty hammer and you can have fun for days!

Just coming across this topic now... I'm surprised no one left a comment before, but maybe everyone missed it first time around, as I did.

It looks to me like you had a successful hunt there even before your latest post, if it wasn't up to your usual standards.  :dinothumb:
