A Third Male Elephant Seal & Merry Christmas!


  • Visibility: 15 miles throughout the day
  • Wind: light breeze throughout the day
  • Sky: overcast this morning then cleared up with lots of sun by afternoon
  • Water: mostly calm, a bit choppy at times


  • Only noticed one or two small boats in the distance
  • No visitors today


  • A third male elephant seal showed up today but is much younger then the other two and only half the size. The three ended up in the same are as each other for the first time and Bernard asserted a bit of dominance, pushing the other two back from the centre of the island.
  • Another elephant seal pup showed up today too


  • Will do another census tomorrow
