Shark was swimming north just to the outside of a line of pot markers. Dorsal and tail fin showing for several minutes.

Wind south east 2-3, very heavy plankton levels, loads of jellyfish about. Comment from Jackie Hall: "At least this shows that there is still the odd shark about if the plankton is there. More than we had last year!"
