I was looking through the bits I brought back from belting and this caught my eye as looking quite different to the others.  Is this a fossil... or shell fragment, or something else...

Hello, going by shape and color I think this could be a (partial) earbone from a dolphin like animal of Eocene - Pliocene age.

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Sorry to dissapoint but I have never heard of any mammalian remains from Beltinge.  The beds are Paleocene not Pliocene 
I think it just looks like a pyritic nodule of which there are millions on the beach at Beltinge.
