Well "Lucky" continues to be unpredictable. These latest locations (from
the past two days) show him moving away from the coast again (he has been
near the cost of Maine around Cape Small) and once again headed south.
What is interesting is that he appears to be following a path that is very
similar (today, within a mile or so) of the path he took on his last trip
south, roughly one month ago. Whether he will end up, once again near
Wildcat Knoll we will (hopefully) see. So far, however "Lucky" has shown
us some things that we (folks that study harbor seals) did not know. The
general feeling has been that harbor seals make the trip from Maine to Cape
Cod seasonally and that they stay near Cape Cod in the winter and near the
coast of Maine in the spring and summer. At least in the case of "Lucky"
it looks like moving from Cape Cod to Maine, may be something that they do
far more often. In "Luckys" case this will be his third trip.
