Misery has been off the main island and out of sight since about March 16. A few female elephant seals have been around, there have been 4 or 5 on Middle rock for the past few days.On the 26th I saw a Sea Otter off the south side of the island. It was mostly swimming on its back and at one point had a sea urchin it was eating on its belly. A few seals followed it as it swam towards middle rock.
See this file on one previous occurrence of Sea Otters at Race Rocks
Tomorrow is the last day of my 4 month shift at Race Rocks. Mike will be returning to take over.
