Ammonite counterpart as cirri-pied-au-terre.

This ammonite counterpart has made a rather splendid home for a colony of barnacles, a few limpets and a whelk.

Great colours in this pic, haven't found any fossils myself on Runswick bay today but have a couple from previous excursions to Sandsend. Just had a quick look at Port Mulgrave those slippery steps gave us quite a turn.

Capt Shagrat may our paths have crossed on the beach today? Runswick beach has been pretty barren of late: we need a bit of rain and a few rockfalls. I'll post a pic of yesterday's fossil haul later. I have found a local sweet spot.

I don't think our paths crossed as we were the only ones on the beach, plus I didn't spot 'The Snig' either ;-). Really nice clean beach apart from the strewn fireworks, I think some kids prob had a beach party the night b4.

Damn I did mean to say 'The Smig'. Doh
