A School of at Least 8 sharks on 15th May!

Hurray! The basking sharks are here! It's amazing how often they arrive in the middle of May. Derek Pitman drew us a cartoon about this many years ago. Here it is again! We've had a few basking shark sightings in the last week and the valuable data that you're sending into us shows us that there was a school of AT LEAST 8 basking sharks in Manx waters on the 15th May 2019. Please keep that data coming. Have a look at what we've had so far this year! http://www.manxbaskingsharkwatch.org/sightings-analysis/?date_from=01%2F05%2F2019&date_to=18%2F05%2F2019
