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? Another angle ... An ammonite nodule I split and a block with an ammonite and a few ammo chunks in it. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Scribbler

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.
