Basking sharks off Falmouth

Basking sharks have been spotted in Falmouth Bay. A number were seen over the weekend and more today.

The warm weather has brought the huge summer visitors which feed on plankton, to the Cornish coast before they make their way northwards through the Irish Sea.

Anyone spotting a basking shark is asked to contact wildlife groups who are monitoring their movements.
