"I first spotted them on my way back in on Saturday evening, around 4pm.

"I was absolutely gutted that I did not take my camera with me because I normally take my camera out on the kayak every single trip, as you never know what you might come across.

"I headed out around lunchtime on Sunday and I was completely gutted that I didn't see anything.

"It was around 3pm I started to paddle back from Prussia Cove and all the way back to the harbour at Porthleven, there were hundreds!"
