Yesterday I got a call from my son.. there is a large Basking Shark in Firths Voe, well that news got my interest going, so I hopped in my car and made my way to Firth Voe,
When I got there, there was no sign of the Shark, instead there was the Sei Whale it was just below me.
So I phoned my mate Mark and told him, he lives overlooking the voe, he opened his window and saw it right away.
So I put it on F/Book and Twitter to alert others.
I returned to the Voe and it was much nearer to me, so I made my way down to the sea until I was right over the Whale..
The Whale was feeding by cruising with its mouth wide open, you can see by my pictures its mouth filtering its food..
Sometimes the Sei would cruise on its side, as shown on my pictures..
I took 740 pics of it, they are all good, but i'll show twenty on two posts.. Enjoy .. PS.. there was a Basking Shark in the voe, which I missed..
