Hi, a mixed bag of bits and pieces found at Saltwick bay, including
the smallest ammonite I've ever found, it's only 6mm I was picking
up something else and noticed it because of its gold sheen, beautiful
little thing. I'll tell you what! I needed a long sit down when I got back
up that hill 😓 Julian

Thanks for taking a look, l seem to be able to find plenty of
ammonites, belemites, bivalves, gryphae, but I don't have
the eye or experience yet, to find the more obscure and rarer
stuff, but I'll keep trying🙏 Cheers Julian

Some interesting fossils to be found down Saltwick, found a Crocodile skull piece last week and a nice Hildoceras etc, just keep your eyes peeled Julian and the delights shall come, Alan.

Thanks Alan, do you have any photos
of the piece of crocodile skull so I can get an idea of what I'm looking for.

Cheers Julian

Pretty hard to spot as many rocks/concretions down there, just got to be in the right place at the right time and be lucky...

Thanks for that, I would never of known what it was.
Did you find it as seen, or was it in a nodule on the
foreshore?

Found is as seen, removed little bit of matrix with a dental tool but only small amounts, very hard to spot, I have been since and found hardly anything but always a pleasure just to be down there.
