It has a been determined: Squall, the
elephant seal pup,  is a female.

This afternoon she was lying on her back sleeping (and snoring) near the flagpole.  She is now a month old and has been without her mother for 6 days. She had been staying around the North side of the main house and hiding from Misery under he North staircase. This morning she ventured out towards the flagpole. Misery went after her a couple times, at one point had her pinned down with his mouth and snout around her neck. Eventually he left her alone, left the island and was later hauled out on Middle Rock.

There were 2 eco tour vessels in the reserve today.

The DND let off three blasts this morning with about 30 mins intervals between them.
