Here are the latest locations for "Lucky". For the past several days
"Lucky" appears to be moving slowly south, nearly following the route he
took the last time he made this trip. He has reached the northern edge of
Wildcat Knoll, and is about 10 miles from the location here, where he has
spent the most time. If he continues in the direction he is heading, he
should reach that spot in another day or se. Hopefully we will see.
Still, this is proving to be a very remarkable track, as it has shown that
a young seal can apparently move easily between haulout locations in Maine,
and feeding areas near Cape Cod.

very cool stuff...

ps

The center of "Luckys" offshore activity is around Lat 42.39 and Lon 69.97
so watch to see if he zeros in around that general area...
