    Hello All

    News coming in of a landslip on the fossil rich coastline of Dorset U.K. I guess it's possible that once it settles down, there could be some potentially interesting fossils to be found. Probably a bit dangerous to go looking right now though.

    Cool - I think they are trying to keep people away for the moment, but once the "dust has settled" - it could be good for some fossil finding, see you there! :sun:

    I hope you folks over there get a chance to wander around in that soon and find some good stuff (dont let one of those car sized boulders fall on you :shock:).

    Keep us posted on any kool finds.
