Field meeting Walton-on-Naze April 1961

A most successful field meeting was held at Walton-on-Naze, Essex, on Sunday 16th. April, attended by 16 members and friends, to collect from the Red Crag deposit of Lower Pleistocene age. Fine weather enabled members to obtain most of the commoner Crag fossils, and some varieties including Scaphella lamberti (Sow.).

Specimens were obtained both from the talus and the cliff face. Mr. P. Cambidge, an authority on the Crag, supplied a detailed account of the section, which was greatly appreciated by all.

During the afternoon a short visit was paid to the salt marshes of Hamford Water, where Hydrobia ventrosa (Mont) was found in considerable numbers.
