I believe there was a recent collecting trip at Eastbourne, but have heard nothing of this. Anyone care to enlighten the rest of us as to what the results were?

The UKAFH hunt to Eastbourne took place on a very, very cold day in January. It was poorly attended overall and finds were few. In the afternoon, some late comers had more luck and sent some photos of the lovely fossils found and subsequently prepped. Enjoy!

I believe it's an unprepped nautilus. Not my find, so guided by the owner's id.

The first ammonite looks like a   Mantelliceras sp., and the second an Acanthoceras sp.
Time is nature's way of stopping everything happening at once.

Here's the complete collection made at Eastbourne by our UKAFH member. Middle top is Schloenbachia, middle left is a nautilus, bottom left is Mantelliceras (negative is top right). 

Second photo shows three of the ammos, nearly completely prepped. Left to right: Mantelliceras, Ancanthoceras and Schloenbachia. 

Most of the other finds found on the day were the usual selection of bivalves and echinoids but these clearly win the prize! 

UKAFH have a hunt in the Chalk at least once a year. The next, which will embrace looking in the Chalk, as well as Greensand and Kimmeidge Clay, will be at Ringstead Bay, Dorset on 27th September. We also have a hunt in the Lower Chalk at Samphire Hoe in Kent on 6th December 2015.
