11-30-11 DB Dailies and More

I got a bit of a late start today, however posse member Gayle was on Kaiwi patrol bright and early,and reported nobody.  DB, has your back been talking to you the past few days?

 A morning email from Dera provided overnight transmitter data. Kekoa (RK72) was still at the Reef Runway, but the highlight of the day was the fact that Kaiwi (RK96) was shown to be off shore of the Diamond Head area !

 At 1130 I found Buster (RV08) and KC (RK28) together on the water front rocks of Seal Rock Inlet , on Rabbit Island.

Team Billand reported that Irma (R010) and M&M (R020) had overnighted at White Plains.

 At 0703 they reported Kermit (R4DG) at Wind Sock.

 At 1343 they found Pohaku (RO28) at Tracks.

Team Billand called at 1700 to advise that posse member Clay Gates had reported Ewa Girl (RS00), at the Shooting Range in Ewa Beach. The bleaching team went out to the SW quadrant, but no animals would cooperate. All dressed up and no where to go.

We were on the road at 0617, on the Kaiwi Kuest, but alas by end of day neither Marilyn & I, nor Gayle, Kathy, June or Z&P had found her, despite lots of looking.

 I spoke with Dera at 0730. She advised that the 2200 Kaiwi data showed her to be somewhere in the Maunalua Bay area, with weak data points.

 She also advised that Kekoa (RK72) was back at the Reef Runway, as of the 0300 data. This was later confirmed by posse member Eileen at 1255 when she found him on her rounds at the Reef Runway.

 Gayle called at 0856 from Spitting Cave, with the report of an animal. When I arrived 0906 I found Buster (RV08) doing 6 minute dives. On his 0937 up he was heading toward the point, and we did not see him again after that.

 The Billands were again busy little beavers over in the SW quadrant. At 0738 they found Irma (R010), near the east end fence at White Plains. At 1048 she would be joined by M&M (R020). The WP population would increase again at 1102, with the arrival of Benny (RE74), down the beach from the girls, fronting #1707. 

According to Barbara , Irma & M&M moved up into the grass near the cottages, late in the day, where cottage residents were all around them.

 At 1017 the Billands reported Ewa Girl (RS00) and Kermit (R4DG) together fronting #1705 at Nimitz Cottages.

 Dana called at 1047 with the report of R5AY at Turtle Bay.
 Also at 1047 she advised that Jeannie Martinson had reported Right Spot at Rocky Point again today.

 The Benmister! 
 There has to be more photos of Benny RE74 with his head up in the air looking around, than any other seal.
 This isn't a great location Benny.... Let's hope the folks in the cabin are respectful

11-28-11 DB Dailies and More

Good Evening , Dailies fans. When backs talk, you listen. I was down and out with a back problem today, so my participation in events of the day was zero. AND when your loved ones tell you to REST dammit you rest, you have many loyal grasshoppers who can take care of things and keep you informed while you heal. 

Thankfully, out this way Gayle, Z , and Marilyn were out there. Gayle reported weaner with a transmitter along with another animal at 0955, but no ID was possible. A talk with Dera this afternoon indicated that Kekoa was still in Maunalua Bay for sure, and so probably was Kaiwi. Based on this animal's behavior, hangin' out fronting the cave, I'd have to guess at Kekoa, but of course ????

 Team Billand had another action filled day, starting with Irma (R010) fronting 1708 at White Plains at 0902. 

Next came a called from the Billands at 0928, reporting Kermit (R4DG) fronting 1701 at Nimitz Cottages.

 At 1404 Team Billand found Pohaku (RO28) once again at Electric Beach.

 At 1452 the Billands spent brief moments with Benny (RE74), fronting #1717 at Nimitz Cottages.

 Dera called at 1338 to advise that Jeannie Martinson had reported Right Spot (R016) at Rocky Point, by her N6 bleach.

 The Billands will no doubt have lots of the usual outstanding Team Billand photos, but I'll ask that you check da' blog in the morning to check them out. Sitting at the computer is no fun at all.
