    Bracklesham find.

    Rather disapointing find, only the one and the smallest so far lol
    Sand had completely covered up the beds, nothing to be seen.

    Disapointing??? what a cracker its beautiful, and v. v. small.
    - I have had trouble finding teeth of any sort for the last 12 months so I would be quite happy with that.

    i know some locals who go and they come back with a handful, was glad i found i was about to give up and turn back. 5hours i spent looking lol
    Shame the beds where covered, so much sand was piled on top. ah well always next time.
    Did not even see any small frags of ray teeth/palate or turtle shell. normally i get them as well.

    Should have been disapointing only one find, usually its quite good for finding them. If your on the bracklesham hunt next year, hopefully the tides will good for us.

    Not too bad, if the tooth was in poor condition it would have been a bad hunt, but that tooth is perfect, so I would not be disapointed!

    That is a superbly preserved tooth. Quality above quantity all day long. I salute you for your perseverance. 5 hours for one tooth is a long time. I've been there....*I will NOT leave this location empty handed!*
