Shark City!!!!

August has been an amazing month for sharks in the Hebrides, the biggest sighting was 50+ sharks in one day and we managed 29 including a number breaching. There has been a huge amount of plankton around and the sharks have been gorging themselves on this. Its not only the sharks too, with the abundant food, we spotted 3 minke whales on the last trips, large pods of dolphins and birdlife. SOme pictures of our last trips and adventures over the first couple of weeks in August.   [caption id="attachment_1474" align="aligncenter" width="642"]A huge mouth scoops ip the plankton A huge mouth scoops ip the plankton[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1501" align="aligncenter" width="642"]White Tailed Eagle in FLight White Tailed Eagle in Flight[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1502" align="aligncenter" width="642"]Overseas visitors enjoying the wilds of the Hebrides Overseas visitors enjoying the wilds of the Hebrides[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1503" align="aligncenter" width="723"]Basking Shark Rope A great day with 10+ sharks around.
