I've a few more finds from Ramsholt. I'd like some help with ID please.

First two pictures showing front and back views of each
A. Anything or nothing?
B. Is this a seed?
C. Is this fossil whale bone?
D. Is this Fossil wood?
E. Is this Fossil wood?

Other pictures: Is this a fossil bird bone or have i stumbled on someone's BBQ leftovers? Again found at Ramsholt.

s.c.
From the pics, A might be worn bryozoan from the coralline crag. B I think is just a nodule. C and E and are bone and quite possibly also D.

For the bone, it looks a bit modern. Can it be scratched with a firmly applied thumb nail?

Thanks for these thoughts.
Yes, the bone can be scratched with a firm fingernail...is this a good test if modern versus fossil?
