    Hey folks,

    Well this is a strange little scene...

    Attached is a map of locations for both Wadadli
    and Louise for the past
    week or so. It appears that they both have
    moved onto Jeffery's ledge
    and are rotating around between the northern
    and southern edges. I am
    not sure what the chances are of two tagged
    seals just bumping into each
    other in the Gulf of Maine, but we are getting
    close. It appears that
    Louise and Wadadli may have been as close as
    several miles from each
    other at one point. Louise appears to be very
    much keeping on the
    shallower part of the bank, while Wadadli has
    been keeping mostly in
    deeper water several miles from the northern
    edge of the bank. As
    location data from yesterday, they had switched
    locations,with Wadadli
    moving to the south end of the bank and Louise
    heading up to the north.

    The assumption here is that both of these seals
    are there looking for
    food. In this case it would also seem to indicate
    that someone
    (probably Wadadli) is not eating their usual prey.
    This is one of those
    times you really wish you had some TDR data ...
    but I will see if I can
    check the temperature data for the two tags to
    see if there is some
    similarity (that might give us a clue if they are
    staying around water
    that is the same temperature)
