|Gault Clay Cliffs|
The best time to go is after a storm when the cliff face has been eroded, that was the first time we visited and we found plenty of nice impressions and fossils. We ventured up to the Gault clay cliffs and I soon discovered a few nice impressions in the clay. The area around the cliffs in general is littered with concrete Anti tank / vehicle blocks left from World War II to prevent landings these are now being overgrown with seaweed.

The last time we came to the beach we found a fragment of old mug / cup dated 1852. To me these simple little things are quite fascinating. We proceeded along the cliff looking for fossils and impressions I found a few more examples in the clay.
I have taken some pictures of previous finds of visits to Copt point.
|Anahoplites sp and Neohibolites Minimus|
We duly had a look but to no avail, another location to check out the next time we visit. Time to stop for a cup of coffee.
Pants had been swimming he really enjoys the water trying to get rocks out of the sea strange dog. Once we had drank our coffee we decided to head off back to the car. Its truly amazing how quickly time goes when you are enjoying yourself we had been on the coast for over 2 hours and the tide was well on the way in. I am going to invest in a small shrimp net and give it a go. We love shellfish, I am sure that it will be fun and a bit of a laugh. I might do a short blog on our first shrimping expedition it depends on how succesful we are.
