before and after pictures of a crinoid I found recently in the Silurian, Wenlock Limestone formation of Shropshire, England, it is still being looked at to see if there is any more of the stem to uncover, its a little jumbled but still a very rare find in Shropshire, provisionally I think it might be Cyathocrinites.

I finally managed to get the very rare Calceocrinid home that I found in the Wenlock Limestone of Shropshire a few months ago, it was in a very large piece of rock that I had to leave behind at the time as I did not think I could safely break the rock down without damaging the fossil, after some hard work I finally got it home today, it's still on a very large heavy piece of rock, but at least it’s safe now, just need now to get the rock cut down to a more manageable size

A planned Christmas Day fossil collecting walk in the Silurian Wenlock limestone of Shropshire was thwarted somewhat by the cold weather, most of the rocks being covered in a hoar frost with thousands of ice needles making it very hard to see the smaller fossils, but despite this and the fact it was freezing, it was a lovely sunny day and the rocks and plants looked pretty amazing, even if I did come back empty handed..
