Though I would share this I picked up at burniston today its not often you find loose blocks with footprints on they're usually on huge boulders.

Not being familiar with the site I may be completely wrong but are you certain they are footprints, and not burrow trace fossils?

Nice, are all the prints assigned to a single ichnospecies in that bed?

Footprints occurre in most of the beds but are very common in one. Usually in distinct size ranges from the little ones to large predators

They're ichnofossils according to me, not footprints, I'm afraid, something like Chondrites (below)

I agree, this block shows burrows - not footprints.

I know trace fossils are a tricky subject just wondering what you see this as? Click image for larger version - Name: P_20190305_105206.jpg, Views: 47, Size: 250.62 KB
