Today I spent over 5 hours scouring the beach at Eastchurch gap on the Isle of Sheppey with a fellow fossil hunter.

We walked from Eastchurch gap all the way to Warden point and between us we found extremely little, a few broken teeth etc. As we turned round to head back it seemed our luck changed with it! The shark teeth began to appear in good number although many of them were quite broken and not worth keeping, a few nice specimens were there to be found!

Of the nice teeth there was one stand out tooth, a Notorynchus serratissimus (picture to follow), the first one of this species I have ever found! :-D also a first for me was the small Burnhamia daviesi(Rhinoptera daviesi) ray file.

My hunting partner also found a nautilus nodule with a damaged centre which he gave to me for my collection of nautili.

The rest of the walk turned up many more damaged shark and fish teeth, some small crab nodules and a few quite nice examples of bivalves and gastropods.

Thank you all for your nice comments. :-)

Really pleasing to find some new species of teeth to add to my collection. And the weather was excellent as well for a change! Haha!
