Rory Goodall, from Elemental Tours in Penzancehas kindly written this blog for the Shark Trust, keeping us up to date with all the latest Basking Shark sightings in Cornwall. 

"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!"
