Hello all.  We're new to this, but found these two fossils (we think) on Cleeve Common in Gloucestershire.  They look to us like shellfish of some kind, and Google suggests that from this area they're likely to be from the Jurassic period - does that seem right?  Thanks

Yes they are Jurassic shellfish. Brachiopods from the Inferior Oolite. Tap the rock in pic 1 with a small hammer and you'll probably expose the whole thing.
