Hi Everybody.
First time posting on the forum.
I managed to fit a little bit of fossil hunting in back in the summer around Robin Hoods Bay/Staithes area while on our family holiday. My first time fossiling & a bit tricky with a 3 year old in tow & but I did mange to pick up a few bits. 
Its certainly give me the bug now though and I really want to get back.

I was hoping you kind lot could maybe help me ID a few things? Sorry if the photos are a bit naff.

First this kind of elongated egg shaped thing? Maybe some kind of shelled creature (bivalve?)? I knocked some of the outer layer away.

These 3 items. Im guessing the bottom one is maybe some kind of mussel type creature? I chipped the outer layer away to uncover it. But no idea on the other 2 or if the dark banded one is even a fossil?

An ammonite nodule I split and a block with an ammonite and a few ammo chunks in it.

Any help appreciated.

I'm going to disapoint i'm afraid. Most are just rocks, except for the obvious ammonites. Nice pos/neg though, thats a good find. The long black thing is a modern inscribing device, likely of hotel origin.

The almost complete ammonite in the last pic could be Peronoceras fibulatum. Nice find!

The top 4 are eggs. Without a doubt.
