Hi

Spent a lovely morning at Runswick Bay. Sadly lacking in ammonites but did find a few things I'm uncertain about, if someone would be kind enough to have a look at them for me.

Photo 1  - wondered if this was a fish or shark scale?
Photos 2-5 - not sure if this is a fossil at all but worth a punt
Photos 6-8- looks like a worn pebble with fossil traces in but not sure what kind.

Thanks very much for reading

Hello Alison, the first find is an ammonite aptychi, the "door"of an ammonite`s shell and a beautifull one at that! Nice find!
Deltapodus (Richard) will undoubtedly be able to give more info on that.
The rest is less spectacular; all natural formed rocks apart from the last nodule, wich I think is fossiliferous but does not look Toarcian in age, maybe from the middle or even more lower lias.
I can`t tell wich fossils they are; shells are the most probable ones.

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...
