Still on line and still cris- crossing the Gulf of Maine. To catch up.
During the latter part of last week "Lucky" appears to have continued south
along the edge of Wildcat Knoll to a location that he has spent quite a lot
of time over the past several months. This time, however he did not stay
very long in this location and almost immediately began to move north and
east again. Over the weekend he headed back to near the coast of Maine,
and followed along the coast (several miles offshore, until he reached the
same location that he headed south from (about ten days ago). Our last
locations appear to be from the same haul out area near Vinalhaven Island,
Maine. It appears that he has hauled out long enough (longer than six
hours) to shut down the tag for today. Probably a well deserved rest, as
the trip from Vinalhaven to Wildcat Knoll is roughly 120 miles ...one way.
Quite a swim, and quite a good sense of direction for a young seal....
