Hi all. Managed to visit Yaxley last weekend and although did not find much whilst there, brought a bag of gravel home to have a sift through. Here are some of the results. Apologies for some of the pics as my camera is not ideal for really small stuff.
 
Not sure what these are, any ID very welcome...

Hi

interesting collection there. I agree with others- 1st 2 on the left are sea urchin spine indents, with little crimped edges that articulate with the main urchin test plates, for it to walk around. I'd go with worm for the 2nd photo. Ammos might be idable if the strata/age of the rock is known

all the best           Heath

Some lovely stuff there, well done. Love the echinoid, and the shark tooth is very nice indeed. I believe it is Paraorthacodus sp, but im no expert on Jurassic sharks, could you take a picture of the opposite side shown in your last pic please?
Thanks

Hmm this is puzzling me, it doesnt help that i dont have any decent resources on Jurassic shark teeth, i'm 99% certain that it is a in the order Synechodontiformes, however, beyond that i'm not really certain. My guess would be something similar to Synechodus sp.
thanks

I know I am extremely late to the party and so it may not be so helpful but I also did some sifting there a few days ago and found about twenty or thirty pieces of the 5th picture and have had them identified as fish or tiny reptile jaw bones. If you are lucky you can even find parts of skulls as well. I found one with the jawbone section on the bottoms. Cool finds!

The "teeth" may be otoliths (fish ear bones). I've just been caught out by some Recent ones but they're not easy to find info on. Nice collection!
