"Things have quietened down a bit, although we're still seeing ones and twos dotted around west Cornwall. Fingers crossed for a big resurgence in numbers in late September - early October, which has happened in previous years, occasionally in quite large numbers. Overall 2012 has been an exceptional year here in the Southwest, with Basking Sharks first sighted in March and still hanging around - hopefully for another few weeks yet!"

Basking Shark Hotspot - Cornwall

"With the ongoing storms, every time one finishes we keep expecting the sharks to disappear, but they keep bouncing back again. In the last two weeks we've had sightings of up to 16 sharks grouped together, with other smaller groups of 3 - 5 individuals also seen. This has mainly been between Penzance and St Ives. We're keen to see how long the sharks will be around for as Autumn starts to draw in!"
