I just posted a video where i find the 3rd joining piece to a big partial ichthyosaur paddle that i've found afew months back. Also some other ammonites and other interesting bits along the way. 

Hopefully you enjoy.

Great trip, that large Hildy is spectacular, what are the odds that you could find the missing piece on a separate trip of the same paddle.

I found the 3 bits on 3 seperate hunts. Luckily i search the area fairly often but it's still super lucky considering the way the tide washes things far away and competition from other collectors ect.

Such a rich shore you have there:Smiling: Very lucky find. Were they far from each other?

I swear I’m going to spend my entire fossil excursion budget for 5 years just to spend a few days there as soon as I can leave this side of pond. Great finds, great vid!

Was that you we passed at Saltwick this morning? No wonder we had such slim pickings!

I'd like to say i bagged up, but i didnt take home anything at all today. Totally empty bag. I just pick up the more interesting things.

About 90% of a hildy was probably our best find today. Great work finding the paddle; my daughter is very jealous!

The odds are pretty slim i’d say of finding a perfect match but you did it anyway ! I hope to get there again sometime, the Yorkshire coast is stunning....
