Subject: location data seal "PoeGo","Jersey","Bristol","McHenry"

Mike et al,

Back from some time away and a lot of data piled up and waiting:

McHenry":

HAs traveled about one hundred miles or so since his release.  He (like
"Bristol") initially moves west along the coast of Cape Cod to roughly
Hyannis, keeping within a mile or so of shore.  He then moved east and
South and headed to the southern tip of Nantucket Island, then turned west
again and headed past Martha's Vineyard to the last of the Elizabeth
Islands (Cuttyhunk).  Our most recent location (no location today, only
data) had him a mile or so off the ocean side of the Island.  This has put
him within miles of every location known to have gray seals around here,
but so far he has shown no sign of stopping or hauling out.  Signaling is
improving and I will be looking at his dive data, later this week.

"Bristol"

"Bristol" appears to be settling into somewhat of a pattern (if you can
call it that).  Locations close to shore on either side of Monomoy Island
appears to be traveling between South Island and Monomoy.  Still not going
more than a mile or so off shore.

"Jersey":

Jersey does a head fake on Newfoundland....Let me explain.....The last set
of locations I sent had "Jersey" about at the mid point of the south coast
of Newfoundland.  The question was left...or right....(which way would she
go...as she was only several miles offshore she had to turn or haul out).
As it turned out she headed first right (east) then backtracked to the
west.  She has moved a bit more offshore and we will see if she heads into
the Gulf of St. Lawrence, or turns again....

"PoeGo":

He's back...Before the break "Poego's" tag had shut down after he hauled
out on ice just south of the Arctic Circle at the top of the Davis Strait.
He has since, gone back into the water, and headed south and east.  It
appears that he has hauled out for some short stops in the past few days,
but I will have to look more closely at his dive data to be sure.  Our most
recent locations (some of the most accurate we have had) show that "PoeGo"
is mid way between Canada and Greenland in the middle of the Davis Strait.
Since turning south he has moved over the deepest water he has been in.

Over the long weekend we received just under one hundred locations from
"Poego".  The most location data we have ever received was from
"Stephanie", a hooded seal we tracked for just over nine months (just over
800 locations).  So far (since July...a little over four months) we have
received just under 700 locations from "PoeGo" and about the same amount of
dive data, that we received during "Stephanie's" entire track.  Keep your
fingers crossed, it seems to be helping......
