Mike et al,

Here are the latest locations from "Goose". As you may recall, "Goose" got
a second trip to Tennant's Harbor, after he hauled out on a crowded Old
Orchard Beach, Monday morning, and was, for his own good, relocated down
the coast. The good news is that, although he has continued to haul out in
areas crowded with people, this did give us a chance to inspect him, and
how he was doing with the tag. Although he has lost some weight, it
appears that he is managing to feed himself quite well. At his size,
however hauling out regularly would be normal and necessary (to rest and
warm up). So we will see what happens from here.

His latest locations put him near Seguin Island, about 3 miles offshore,
and about 25-30 miles from his relocation point. And yes he is headed back
in the general direction of Old orchard beach.
