Yesterday it was the turn of the puffin to be featured on-line; today the basking shark has its turn. The movements of basking sharks are being studied closely now that eight of them have been tagged. Their whereabouts are close to Coll, Tiree and Hyskeir and details are to be found through a site promoted by Scottish Natural Heritage and the University of Exeter. This promises to be an on-going study worth following.
