Dolphins, whales and basking shark spotted off Cornwall
Hey everyone, it’s me Freddy!
It’s not just the locals and holidaymakers who are enjoying basking in the sun this Easter – no pun intended.
Pods of dolphins, minke whales and even a huuuge basking shark have been spotted frolicking in the bays around Cornwall this week.
The dolphins have been sighted near to our holiday lodges in Cornwall in St Ives and Carbis Bay. Fisherman Simon Rouncefield, whose boat was followed by a pod of around 40 said: “They just joined us and decided to ride along for a while.”
“This sort of thing is becoming more and more of a regular occurrence.”
“We might go for a week or two without seeing any but then we might see them every day for a week.
The basking shark was seen breaching waters off Portcurno – near Kenegie Manor – which is thought to be the first sighting of the shark this year.
Cornwall waters are a popular feeding ground for basking sharks – but don’t worry, they only feed on tiny organisms and plankton, not us!
