Scapa Flow

Just been up to Scapa on a filming job.
Vis was pretty good, around 10m at least and the water a balmy 9C.
Good to see the old wrecks again.
We dived the Karlsruhe, the Dresden, the
Coln and the Markgraf.
The filming was about how the presence of the wrecks in the Flow has limited local fishing, allowing certain animal species to thrive.
There are millions of brittle stars carpeting everything, including the wrecks. Horse mussels are also thriving underneath vast swathes of brittle stars
Thanks to all the dive team, Rich,
Dan, Rob and Kieran. Not forgetting Geordie and George the ever tolerant Sunrise crew who looked after is with hot soup and a magic kettle which always seemed to be hot!
An excellent week.
Look out for it on the One Show, when ? Who knows?
