Les Papillons Fossil Hunt: Lough Erne, Fermanagh

300 millon years ago the weather in Fermanagh was tropical. Today the county is as infamous for its damp weather as it is famous for its beauty. 

Millennia ago the county was submerged under a shallow tropical sea and if you're lucky and look at the rocks along the exposed shore you can find coral fossils.

The Lough has been low recently and if I'm honest the weather has been damp and bleak, but nevertheless the search began. Fossil finding! 

We found none.

I think I shall stick to painting the Lough!
