Dinosaur Expeditions C.I.C. - The Story so far…… Part 7

With mild weather in mid-November we decided to conduct the second survey of the cliffs after recent rainfall.


The cliffs were boggy, with large slumps of soft mudflows, which made accessing sites difficult and in several cases impossible.


Several bones were found (not the small theropod we had hoped for) but from an unfortunate sea bird! Interesting from a modern taphonomy perspective though.


We were able to discover another four previously unknown sites mostly producing fresh water bivalves, more Hybodont shark spines and fusain preserved fossilised wood. Sadly no significant bone discoveries were made except for isolated fragments discovered on the flint gravel shingle below the high tide level of the beach.

This would be the last survey of the year with the next survey due in February 2015.
