You usually see them in Cornwall around August, maybe it's lost. Great to see.

We see them around the Needles occasionally.
Have you reported the sighting?
HERE is the link they log all reported sighting to help understand the routine of them.

What a great sight, I remember seeing a whale in the Med basking like that once - fantastic.

I guess the sun fish has gone into hiding now though!
