Dr Colin Dawes takes groups out on fossil finding trips as the walk proceeds on the pebbled beach, dawes repeatedly reminds us not to wander too close to the cliff 's edge because of erosion and the danger of falling rocks. "The other day I was cursed at for warning a family whose kid was right under the cliffs. after that I decided to give up. do you know what the word is for such behavior? `natural selection,'" dawes says, with distinctively english dry humour. The high point of the trip comes when we arrive on a rock plateau in the end of the Mammoth beach. The "ammonite pavement" is completely covered in ammonites and can only be seen at low tide. The ammonites here are among the oldest in the UK and many of them are more than 60 centimetres wide. "and never mind the rain, even though it rains a lot in the UK," says dawes. "In the wet weather the fossils stand out better, there are more cliff falls and bigger high tides. all of these conditions mean a better chance of finding something unique."
