There are no prizes for guessing where the name 'Fossil Burn' on the Morvern peninsula originated from... It is covered in fossil oysters, or Gryphaea, that lived on the shoreline of a tropical sea here 200 million years ago. Whilst these Bivalves were living in the shallow seas, predators like Velociraptors would be ruling the surrounding landmass. While admiring these fossils I saw one of a Velociraptors avian-ancestorial cousins overhead, the White-tailed Eagle!
