Shark Details

This shark very very close to the shore when I first spotted it. Sorry no picture as I had 2 sets of binoculars but no camera! It slowly worked its way over to the Calf and disappeared into the tide line. Lots of people were sat at the Sound Cafe enjoying the day and the shark just added some spice to the lovely day!

Environment Details

Sea flat calm. Storm forecast or we would have been out on the boat.
