This oyster, complete with both halves but lost beak weighs 460g and is 12x9x5.5 Cm, found on Trimingham beach yesterday. I would be interested in species ID, age and cause of the small bore holes it is riddled with.  4562032B-6567-4B39-A1A5-3B565762242C.jpeg  56DC92EA-0335-4307-8F32-C88B693FE3EA.jpeg  Click image for larger version - Name: 73F446B0-C330-4D22-B2EF-AFC1DFF9830F.jpeg, Views: 11, Size: 541.28 KB Click image for larger version - Name: CF7A47F6-B6CE-498D-8F95-B81B87245D82.jpeg, Views: 11, Size: 517.85 KB Click image for larger version - Name: AA9DA680-6DC2-4F35-8137-41CCBB6474B6.jpeg, Views: 9, Size: 246.38 KB

Hello Marion the area where you found thisis  mainly 'Crag' deposits and I am not familiar with these. It is an oyster and te holes will have been made by small marine snails but could have been made pre or post fossilisation.Hopefully someone will be able to give you a genus / species.

Hi Colin
Thank you for your reply! Good to know I was right with my assumption that it’s an oyster.
