Hi my son, who loves to collect fossils found this on Jurby beach in the Isle of Man just as the tide was going out.

Sorry about the quality of photos, but can anybody help to identify any of the fossils shown its like nothing we have ever found before. Thanks.

I would say coral, but Tarquin will surely tell you exactly what it is

Yes, corals, probably Carboniferous. Tarquin?

That's ironic, I was sat admiring this Carboniferous solitary coral yesterday at Ogmore by Sea, sadly not as big and colourful as yours.

Beautiful example, looks like Siphonophyllia. (And Pete's is probably the same genus. 🙂 )
