Here is the latest from "Lucky". And yes he is on the move again. He has
continued south and west and has moved about 50-60 miles since yesterday.
Quite a run for a small seal. Although he is not following any of his
previous tracks very closely, he is heading in the general direction of
Wildcat Knoll. His last location was roughly half way between Vinalhaven
(his starting point) and Wildcat Knoll (the location he left roughly two
weeks ago).

As of today we have also hit two other landmarks. Today marks four months
we have been tracking "Lucky", this makes him the longest (and certainly
the most detailed) track we have gotten for a harbor seal so far. Keep
your fingers crossed, that those batteries hold out for a bit longer.
Another month and "Lucky" would be due to molt and drop off his transmitter
when he looses the hair it is stuck to....
