    Hi tabfish.  I may be wrong but I think the fossil on the original post could be a chalk nodule which contains a fossil sponge.  I've seen similar ones on the internet before but it could be something different.

        Hi tabfish.  I'm going to the IOW on Monday to Friday.  I'm going to Yaverland twice and maybe Atherfield or brook bay.  Hopefully the bad weather today has washed some good fossils into the sea.

            Thanks tabfish.  Do you suggest looking on the the beach directly in front of the dinosaur isle museum or walking up to the area where the cliffs are? Is it a long walk to get to the cliffs?

             

             

            Thanks.

            Hi tabfish.  I've just being looking at the post where you are holding the ichthyosaur bone and I can see what looks like an ichthyosaur vert.  I have attached an image of where I think it is.

                Hi tabfish.  I got back from the Isle of Wight on Friday and I found some good fossils so any identifications would be appriciated.

                 

                 

                I'll post my finds later on but I won't receive any posts after 11:00 because I'm going on holiday to mallorca.

                 

                 

                I found a partial fish skeleton (which I'm still preparing).  So far I have found 2 verts and some teeth.  I also found some really good dinosaur fossils.

                 

                Thanks,
