Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...

... your office mate distracts you from your coffee with a phone call about the world's second largest fish blogging about in Kames Bay. Needless to say coffee was abandoned and I set off at a run along marine parade (totally disregarding my camera). Luckily it hung around for over an hour and thirty minutes, giving me plenty of time to not only nip back and get it, but to call everyone else and tell them about the beastie.

At around 3 meters in length he was only a tiddler, but this probably made him braver in the shallow water of the bay.
Feeding with his mouth wide open, he filtered out the zooplankton brought in on the tide.
Having the shark so close in let everyone get a really good look.
As the evening wore on and the tide ebbed he headed out past wee Cumbrae, following the food.
