Boney and scaly fish remains from Fairlight

A few weeks ago Steve Chapman and I joined a University of the Third Age field trip east of Hastings to look for dinosaur footprints and fish teeth and scales in fallen rock at Fairlight. We did find the last two, lots of them in huge pieces of fallen coarse sandstone, apparently flash flood events on a swampy delta.
Recently the Brighton and Hove Geological Society’s journal had a photograph of the typeof bony fish that the scales and some of the teeth came from. Thought you might like to see both.
The original trip is recorded at June 24th this year.
