Notes

We were watching some seals near the watch tower near the priory when I noticed a triangular fin moving very slowly. The shark passed nearby to the seals but did not bother them. the fin was clearly visable for about 10 minutes then disappeared. Other people saw the shark as well.Unfortunately I did not get a photo of this shark.
