Shark Details

Looked to be feeding near surface and dove upon approach by the Ben-my-Chree. Comment from Jackie Hall: How exciting, it is so interesting how the first basking sharks of the year often pop up in places where you don't see them at the height of the season.

Environment Details

Lots of birds present.
