Dry,dry Summer great for sunbathing but not good for fossil hunting 9th August 2022

Its strange, what makes a good summer for visitors is a disaster for fossil hunting. We have not had much rain and the Jurassic Cliffs are baked and hard with little movement. The good weather does have one bonus there have been dolphins seen just offshore and the dead body of a porpoise was washed up on the beach to the west of Charmouth. To the east of Lyme Regis there is a large amount of sand covering the best area to find fossils. The beach changes every day and a sudden storm or strong south westerly winds could change very thing over night.
I have been very busy and I have been unable to take out all those that would like to go on a fossil hunting trip and apologise for those disappointed.
