Re: British mesozoic birds?

Another British bird-related discovery (closer to birds than Eotyrannus, as was asked) would be some dromaeosaur teeth from the Bathonian, around 164 Ma. I think at least one of them had been reported to show features of a velociraptorine. This is particularly interesting as it shows that dromaeosaurs were around before Archaeopteryx appeared, but the teeth don't get mentioned as much as they would if they were still in the jaws of a little feathered dinosaur when found.
