Gannets and fish also feeding on zoo plankton

A Basking Shark has been sighted in the bay at Port Erin this afternoon (Thurs 9).

Reports say at approximately half past one, the elusive fish could be 'easily seen' from the Bradda Glen footpaths.

Common indicators of spotting a shark in the area were present.

One local noticed fish breaking and feeding on the zoo plankton, while a gannet was diving from above.
