Shark Details

Swim fairly fast in southerly direction towards the calf. Comment from Jackie Hall: How interesting that we are still getting basking sharks when the we 'normally' get our very last basking shark sighting in Manx waters no later than the 1st September. I think this may be the same shark that we have a still photo of on our Facebook page but no details of time etc as yet.
