Shark Details

This 6m long shark was feeding in circles between the jetty and Bradda Head. I counted 50 people enjoying watching this wonderful animal

Environment Details

There was a gentle onshore breeze. The water was murky with plankton, oily fronts forming under Bradda Head and across the entrance to the bay. I saw one jellyfish and a seal was very interested in the shark.
