Hola,

This is a bit odd...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotland/glasgow_and_west/6929378.stm

Why isn't all the data uploaded from the tag???

How would they have got the tag back to get the data???

What is the shark recording on it's tag in Edinburgh?

 ???

Right! This is getting very silly! As the following excellent Wikipedia article shows us, thereby corroborating my original hypothesis, Hadrian's Wall was built entirely on land, so although it is just possible that said shark might have been spotted to the north of an imaginary line drawn on from where the wall came to an end, it's far more likely that the person writing the headline was as p. as a tritón (Eng. anyone?)  :dancing:

Greetings Clive,
Before getting down to b. tacks, did you perchance spot the following internal Beeb link on that same page: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6932299.stm?

Right, where was I? Right, a) would one of those tags be highly radioactive? Es decir, would size refer to the need to incorporate powerful transmitter or what?
b) could there be hitherto undetected underground passages (which might also explain Nessie's non-appearances whenever people use sonar etc. to try and get a glimpse of 'er) by which the shark is ablt to travel under the UK as opposed to crossing overland?  :dancing:

Rges.

Greetings All,
Actually ties in nicely with the end bit of my latest posting at http://www.iberianatureforum.com/index.php/topic,58.msg4430.html#msg4430.
You just happen to snarf the bit of shark's fin in the soup that has one of those transponder babes in it and researchers will be freaking out ... the mind boggles (Sp. anyone?)
