Subject: location data, seal, "Bubba"

He's off...sort of (part II)

After apparently spending about one day (3/6) near or on shore near Saint
John, New Brunswick, "Bubba" appears to have headed east across the Bay of
Fundy on 3/7 and as of roughly 6PM EST was near the west coast of Nova Scotia.

This is not the first time we have tracked a hooded seal that appeared to
make a side trip up into the Bay of Fundy (see "PoeGo" in Archives).
Hopefully we will be able to tell tomorrow if he continues deeper into the
Bay (not a good choice I would think) or heads around the southern end of
Nova Scotia.

Keep your fingers crossed.
