>After a long weekend, more data from "Plover". The good news is that we
>are getting fairly regular location hits. It appears that "Plover" is
>making his way at a fairly steady rate (we can get some idea of this from
>the distance between locations when the tag is turned on and when it is
>turned off as well as the locations themselves). These locations show
>that he is still heading somewhat south, but has headed farther offshore.
>His latest locations put him roughly sixty miles east of the mouth of
>Delaware Bay. While this is not the direction we would expect him to go
>(hooded seals home range is in the Arctic to the north), he is presently
>over water that a depth that other hooded seals appear to prefer. We will
>have to see if he begins to head north following this depth, or not....
