What a difference 3 days makes. The clay was fairly sticky in places this time. A previous visitors boot well cemented in the clay was a good reminder to always be aware of your surroundings when hunting, as they say geology rocks but clay sucks! 

Most of these came from the second land slip South of the path from the Holiday Park.

Thanks to FossilPhil and MicroFossilMan I even sound like I know what I am talking about this time [smile]

Ammonite ~The cream 'shell' is very flaky. I was suprised by the size of the crystals/pebbles coming from the ends. To be honest, if I had found that it on Cleethorpes beach I would have said it was fake. However, this was impacted in the clay with just the smallest bit of outer 'shell' visible. Hopefully someone has seen something similar before.

With a young child I am aware of every teaching opportunity, on this day we got two.

Ammonite (with breccia)

And an almost perfectly split belemnite with an empty 'body' cavity.

Of course education also includes things that are not real.
I am pretty certain this is not a dinosaur paw!

20180814_145957.jpg  20180814_150006.jpg 

And this is probably not a dino-slug eating chalk

As always any help identifyinganything or correcting my bad science would be most appreciated. If you require any other views please let me know.
