Seal tagging is starting to pick up, but we still haven't hit the "peak pupping" part of the season. We have tagged 37 pups so far, 5 of which were dead. The weather in general has been less pleasant than what I remember last season, with pretty fierce winds at least every couple days. In addition to newborn pups, we have been tagging alot of adult males who aren't tagged, or whose tags are broken or missing - a distinctly more challenging experience than tagging a pup.
Here are a few photos from the last week out on the sea ice:
