Corprolite

Pic 2 may be corprolite, but I'm not sure

The first one may be a clam rather than a brachiopod. It is hard to tell for shire because the right side of the shell is worn. The reason I say clam is because brachiopods are symmetrical left and right.

The other pieces I cannot identify. I would guess sponges but they could be lots of things.
