Will's summer 2021


Recommended Posts

Very busy at the moment But found some time to write this up ;) this is a trip around the same time as the other trips (July) to shanklin on the Isle of Wight. This site is known for greensand molluscs and dinosaurs . The brachiopods come from the aptian old walpen chine member of the ferruginous sands of the lower greensand 

Let’s start with the brachiopods ;)  thanks to @Tidgy's Dad for the IDs :) 

1. The most common brachiopod, Rhynchonella parvirostris
