Quest stayed on the northern spit of Cape Cod for the past week. She started near Wellfleet harbor but moved south after a couple of days, apparently setting up her new operation around Nauset Harbor.

We were lucky to get three good consecutive readings on the morning of the 20th. Each data point, spaced at 2-hour intervals, show Quest at the beach and tidal flats surrounding the Main Channel, within a mile of Nauset Harbor. It seems like a good bet that she’s doing a lot of hunting there. Temperature sensor data show consistent readings in excess of 20°C (68°F) at most times of the day. The high temperature reading for the week was a balmy 28.4°C, or 83°F! That’s not bad for the day before Spring…

We were hoping to nail down where Quest is spending her evenings, but it doesn’t look like she’s found a particular spot yet. The evening and early morning position data are all over the place. It may be that she just finds a quiet spot out of the way wherever her travels have taken her that day, but we’ll keep watching to see if a pattern develops. If past is prologue, we expect she’ll settle into a routine pretty soon.

    I sometimes find the Yahoo Discussion site a little hard to follow. There is so much going on there. But am I glad that I checked today. The “Z-Man”
    (Zephyr – Quest’s brother) has been positively identified hanging out at [an old building in Brighton] with a lady friend. How great is it to know that at least two of last years little ones have made it through their first winter and seem to be thriving.
