Fossilised corals, Wren's Nest
Fossilised corals, Wren's Nest
A reef bed (bioherm) near the top of the outcrop of the Nodular Limestone Member north of the ripple beds. The fragment shown is about 20cm wide. In addition to many rounded shell fragments and some limestone cement, a large coral can be seen on the right. The stems of the corals would be pointing into the rock (but are unlikely to be preserved).
