Basking Shark Watch

Scillonian off to the Isles of Scillies braving force 5-6Chris on continual Basking Shark WatchBeautiful GannetsRock and Meadow Pippets flew right next to usChris Chris and I completed our first Basking Shark Watch at Hella Point for the Cornwall Wildlife Trust Basking Shark Project...sadly no sharks in a force 5-6 which was quite spectacular to watch . The Scillonian braved the wild waves alongside at least 720 gannets that we counted gliding by at cliff top level..stunning. Many of the Gannets were juveniles. All in all not a day at sea but with the stunning scenary ...and watching the sunrise...a very enjoyable day:0) The Plankton is still around so just waiting for some long hot days in the hope we see some Basking Sharks near Newquay. Keep watching on this site and www.atlanticdiver.co.uk to see when the sharks finally arrive.Hella PointRainbow over the choppy seas
