Wildwords is currently stabbing away at them further up the coast.

We met a group of three large sharks feeding on a highly visible plankton bloom that was being concentrated in a "tideline" just off the headland. The largest of them (already tagged!) was about six meters long - measured against the rib . We drifted with them for 15 minutes and BabydollNelly took a few pics, see below.

quality pictures

Brian kindly took myself and some friends around the Isle of Man on Sunday evening, two and a half hours of sheer bliss topped by sighting basking sharks off Niarbyl as we returned to Peel at 2100hrs. Nowhere nicer when the sun is shining!!
