Hi, I don't expect you to reveal your locations but would appreciate a little guidance.
My sons and I would love to find some urchines like those, I assume 1) A beach such a shingle street would be suitable? 2) best to wait for high tide and then search the tideline as it e
recedes?
Thanks

hi,anywhere there are a lot of flint pebbles(ive spent many years at stutton ness and found large amounts of urchins esp micrasters and sternotaxis,also very good for for flint shells etc..these are all glacial erratics)..haven't tried shingle street but think its the same as Felixstowe(urchins rare)..also found erratics at wrabness(not many) Holbrook bay and nacton...I would search all over a beach,looking for concentrations of flint pebbles(at high tide points the pebbles are very small and although you can find fossils I find it very hard work)...the finds in this topic are from a location we stumbled upon recently(large flint boulders from chalk beds somewhere off shore)..also anywhere inland around these parts with concentrations of flint pebbles(fields/trackways/driveways/road borders etc....happy hunting.
