I've seen a couple in The Solent,and a HUGE Bugger in the Bristol Channell some years ago..sometimes apparently,the Surface Lolling around also helps them get rid of of Paracites which they can even allow Seabirds to remove.

Pretty awsome things when you come across a Big un!...Dont know about Global Warming...but they have certainly been visiting S.W. Waters for many years.

I remember seeing one off Sidmouth in August 2004, but none since then. We probably don't go out far enough most of the time.

We saw one today off the Mewstone - saw dorsal fin & thought it was a dolphin or basking shark until we got close. Took some photos but don't have the Lumix download lead with us- although we seem to have every other cable invented in the laptop bag!

Interesting creature may be 1.5m-2m long - not seen one before off Dartmouth (or anywhere else) before.

Nice size for a UK sighting

On a similar note, this pic (see last pic on link) was taken by 'Sea Trust' colleagues on an offshore cetaceans monitoring trip yesterday. Thresher surrounded by Commons think the term is 'Well Jeal'
