Hello,


Today I went to Hooken Cliff looking for fossils and would like some help identifying some of these. I know roughly the sort of fossils they are I believe them to be oysters, bivalves and brachiopods. But some more specific ID would be very helpful.


Thank you in advance. IMG_20190106_181823.jpg  IMG_20190106_181841.jpg  IMG_20190106_182033.jpg  IMG_20190106_182105.jpg  IMG_20190106_182129.jpg  IMG_20190106_182212.jpg  IMG_20190106_182237.jpg  IMG_20190106_182250.jpg  IMG_20190106_182251.jpg  IMG_20190106_182253.jpg  IMG_20190106_182312.jpg

Hi

Sorry some are only partial shells I have no idea of exactly what they are.
The others are not clear, one maybe a sponge impression.

Lack of falls mainly, scouring tides removing talus and smaller blocks. What was available has been collected. I did notice that the beach has dropped by a couple of feet recently.
I would like some cenomanian bed C blocks to come down as they are full of phosphatic ammonites.
