It is the end of summer and Monty's time as a volunteer working for an Irish whale and dolphin group is coming to an end. Storms are making it difficult to put to sea, but Monty must retrieve an acoustic listening device he anchored on the sea bed to monitor whale and dolphin movements in his bay. But that was four months ago and now there is no sign of the 4000 euro recorder. Without the data it has recorded, much of Monty's six months work will have been wasted.

Monty Halls goes back to his marine biologist roots as he studies whales and dolphins off the spectacular west coast of Ireland. This week his mission is to track down basking sharks, true monsters of the deep which can grow up to 10 metres long. They appear off the shores every summer but we know remarkably little about these gentle giants and Monty is on constant lookout for their tell-tale fins. He is determined to tag as many as he can in the hope that scientists can eventually discover the...

The west of Ireland is one of the most spectacularly beautiful coastlines in the world and for one glorious summer it's home away from home for marine biologist Monty Halls and his dog Reuben. Some of the biggest and most mysterious animals on the planet migrate through the waters off Connemara but nobody knows how many whales, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks and even blue sharks are out there. It's Monty's job to find out before the winter storms bring research to an end. (From the UK) (Do...
