No big changes, but perhaps a move a bit north and west...

As for the other two seals....Have you ever been watching a real good movie
on TV and just when it gets to the good part the cat sits on the remote and
switches the set off? ....I'm kinda having one of those days with these
seals...

"Jersey"

No locations, but some dive data.  From the dive depths I would guess she
is still offshore in deep water.

"Bristol"

No locations, no data.  This is unusual for a small harbor seal.  There is
a possibility that the seal has moved up a tidal creek into water fresh
enough to shut the tag down, or has hauled out long enough to shut the tag
down (and managed to do it when the tag was shut down to "rest).  At least
those are the best guess for now.  We will see over the next few days.
