disturbance - 7:59h:mm other
Seal lion appearance coincided with PIGU on beach and near shore startling and leaving the area, first moving about 100 yards off shore, then leaving area completely. Sea lion stayed in the area, floating on its side with tail tipped up out of the water and one flipper extended vertically. Almost appeared to be sunning itself, but it wasn't sunny. The sea lion floated like this for the remainder of our survey and finally disappeared after we left the beach. We could tell the PIGU were slowly starting to return as we left the site.
survey.note - Walnut B burrow visit
a single PIGU was observed flying into a burrow at the Walnut B site. Did not observe it leaving the burrow. Also, did not appear to have any prey.
survey.note - Site count
before we settled and did our official starting count I observed as many as 22 PIGU in the water at this site.

disturbance - 7:40 unknown
could not discern any particular cause. PIGU were on beach and in shallow water when they suddenly scattered and moved further out in the water
disturbance - 8:20 unknown
could not discern any particular cause - PIGU close to shore and on beach suddenly startled and moved further out , some out of sight.
survey.note - PIGU disturbances
I wonder if PIGU sometimes suddenly leave an area (today they were on shore or close by) on their own initiative without any outside disturbance ....... maybe they are "wired" to only stay with one activity for so long and then they have to move.....as part of a survival mechanism?
