Now I'll have to see about visiting England to do some fossil-collecting myself - thanks for all of the detailed information!!!

 

I love your "ammonites lying in plain sight on the beach" from Lyme Regis to Charmouth - Dorset as well as your Dactylioceras commune and belemnite phragmocones from Saltwick Bay (Yorkshire) - simply beautiful! :wub::ammonite01:

 

Add-on:  I just read your entry for Kings dyke-Cambridgeshire - amazing belemnites!!!!!!!!!!  And your ammonite from that location is really pretty - I am so :envy: right now!!!

A brilliant report! I could see losing several hours (or days!) here just beach-combing.

I'm glad you liked it Monica! Yes, put it on the list, start stashing some cash, whatever you need to do :P it's well worth it. If you have any questions about planning such a trip or anything about the locations feel free to ask. I see you're an invert gal. I'm afraid my report was very vertebrate biased hahaha but there were loads of other interesting inverts i saw that didn't make it in. You will be pleased either way.

Of definitely, it's a thrill that you can't shake even in terrible British weather (sorry Brits hahaha). ''5 more minutes... ok 10... just one more hour'', you never know when you'll come across something great. This goes for fossil hunting in general too, but i love that no matter how many times you visit a place you can still find new things. It's different every time.

Great post!!! Thanks for creating such an informative description of your trip. It comes at a time I am seriously contemplating a trip to England. My wife turns 60 on Feb 26th and she has ALWAYS wanted to visit England. So I am currently looking into the costs of such a trip, though I don't like what I am seeing. We will see how much I love her!!!. If we go, reading your trip report helps me tremendously in deciding whether  side trips for fossils are possible.

Like Monica, I collect invertebrates. Also like her, we really do not have a choice due to the geology of our home bases being Ordovician/ Devonian. I am sure she would love to find the vertebrate material you showed. If I solidify a trip, is your offer to answer questions only directed to Monica or can I pick your brain??

Great report, and one I’d like to make someday.  My focus would be ammonites, echinoids, and ichthyosaur verts.

What an awesome trip and report:dinothumb:

I really do have to visit someday! I thought the mammals were particularly cool, but everything you found was pretty awesome! Some sites reminded me of contemporaneous sites we have over here that I’ve visited, cool to see the comparison.
