Subject: location data, seal, "Bubba"

Mike, et al,

He's off...sort of...

After staying in nearly the same location for nearly a month, it appears
that "Bubba" decided to make a move. Over the weekend, he headed almost
straight north into the Bay of Fundy. My most recent position places him
near or on the coast of New Brunswick just south of Saint Johns (this is a
distance of roughly 180 miles from his location on Thursday/Friday). If
you look closely at the data you will see that the last few data points
have higher "LCs", because of te increase in messages received by the
satellite. This may indicate that "Bubba" is either spending more time at
the surface, in the shallow water near shore, or has hauled out. Hopefully
tomorrow's data will tell us if he is continuing to move or has stopped on
shore.

yikes,
