Beach egg

Found this today on the Severn estury. The tide was out, it was found just below a pile of seaweed. It had a soft seaweed feel to it.

    Hi

     

    My first impressions are, its a birds egg, was the shell hard or soft and where on the Severn did you find it

        Hi

         

        I cannot understand the pointed end, in my experience marine fish excluding the shark family lay round eggs, its possible its a Turtle egg but the shape to me  is wrong, did the shell feel soft and leathery

         

        Here is a site on which I identified as Basquesteve (thats where I live) a Turtle egg on the Channel Islands
