Devonian fieldtrip with a view


Recommended Posts

Manticocerasman

Last Saturday we went on a new fieldtrip on one of our favorite hunting spots for Devonian fossils.

Not a lot of fossils were found and the only large goniatite, although pretty at first sight turned out to be a nightmare to prep with little to no preservation further down in the nodule.

On the other hand we had verry sunny day with nice views over the area and the first flowers taking advantage of the sunlight on the older scree piles.

We also brought home a few small nodules with tornoceras fossils , they will take a while to prepp before we will see if they were worthwhile.

This is a huge place with lots of material to go through, but only a small part of it is interesting for fossils.

It takes a little practice, but when you know what rocks to look for you always find something.
