Dr Eric Shaw, head of the marine section of the Gibraltar Ornithological and Natural History Society, said the sightings illustrated the diversity of marine life in Gibraltar's waters.

He told the Chronicle the waters around the Rock were a rich feeding ground for all sorts of marine animals.
"The Strait of Gibraltar acts as a bottleneck and everything concentrates here," he said.
The shark was filmed by the Department of the Environment, which released footage to the media showing it feeding on the surface, its dorsal and tail fins clearly visible.
Basking sharks are among the largest in the world but are harmless and feed on plankton.
Dr Shaw said that while sightings of basking sharks are not common in these waters, they are not rare either.
He said increased leisure activity out at sea meant the number of sightings would also increase.

Marine section head of The Gibraltar Ornithological & Natural History Society, Eric Shaw, agrees that enclosed rubbish areas are a measure which helps restrict the monkeys access to food but says that there are more deep rooted issues.

They think 'the fact you have a house there it is not my problem', they are wild animals," said Mr Shaw.
Although it is a punishable offence for unauthorised people to feed monkeys, the law is not being enforced as rigorously as it might be, Mr Shaw said "there are strict rules but we see them as a joke."
