The Lyme Regis Fossil Festival really does get bigger and better each year! There was not enough room to swing a geological hammer in the marquee today- there must have been thousands of people visiting the festival, and there will be more tomorrow. We have seen a selection of specimens brought in for identification, mainly local ammonites, as we expected. Luckily we also had several Dorset ammonite experts on our stand.


The live satellite link to the Museum's Attenborough Studio could not have gone better. Everything worked as it should have, but it was so cold on the beach that I suspect the Nature Live audience could hear my teeth chattering! Thanks to Natalie and Lee 'on location' and to the team in the studio.


As we were about to sit down to a home-cooked curry (thanks Val), we were rudely interrupted by the ceiling collapsing, so I am writing this on a slightly dusty laptop. We still haven't had our curry!


Do come down to the festival if you can. We're there until 5 pm on Sunday 6th May.
