VIDEO: Great White Watch

The great white shark that's prompted shark fever has started heading away from Cornwall.
Lydia was satellite tagged by wildlife watchers, meaning it is possible to track her movements.
She measures 4.4m and weight around 2000lb.
She has covered thousands of miles since setting off from Florida, prompting speculation she could end up off the coast of the Duchy.
But since Tuesday morning she has been swimming away from us.
You can check her progress here.
One of the scientists involved in the project, Heather, said: "We didn't know what we would learn when we tagged her, but the past year has been really exciting."
Another of the experts involved in the project says it's a possibility she is pregnant and looking for safe nursery waters to give birth.
Doctor David Gibson runs the National Marine Aquarium says, if that is true, she will want to be left alone: "All mothers are very protective of their young and great whites are no different. They tend to stay solitary when they're about to give birth - mainly because other great whites are very effective predators on baby great white sharks."
A Bude shark expert has told Pirate FM he believes great whites have been coming to the Duchy for years.
Richard Pierce insists it is nothing to worry about: "Sadly something around 80% of great whites in the north Atlantic have been killed through over fishing for shark fins. So, if Lydia did come to see us we should count ourselves hugely privileged.
"Please, please don't anyone worry about coming to Cornwall on holiday or bathing on Cornwall's beaches.
"I wouldn't say the threat to humans is any more if Lydia pays us a visit than it was before - because I think Lydias have been paying us visits for many, many years."
Mabe diver Mark Millburn is hoping she still makes it to the Duchy - and is pledging to go diving with her: "It's very exciting to divers. It depends where it goes and what the conditions are like. But if there was a chance we would be able to see it we would certainly try to go and find the shark. We might even try to dive with it and, if we can, we will film it."5:47am 12th March 2014
