The New Year's Eve cast of characters were out in force today. At 0706, I found Buster (RV08) at "Buster's Bush" , (aka Alice's). I cordoned him off and he remained the rest of the day.

At 0950 I found Kolohe (RW22) partially visible behind the water front rocks of Rocky Right Beach on Rabbit Island. He remained all day.

At 1031 I found Aukai (RL12) just hauling out to the water front rocks on the left side of Rocky Right Beach. She would remain the rest of the day.

I relocated to the Makapuu Overview at 1254, and from that point of view I found that Kaiwi (RK96) was with Kolohe at RRB. She had been completely invisible from the pier.

Kimo Smith checked in from Ka'ena Point at 0737. He reported RK36, Ka'ena (RO40), R912, Temp 412 & RL42 at the end of the world. Stacey Stella would also report the same cast later in the day.
At 0811 Team Billand reported 2AW at Tracks.

At 0849 they called with the White Plains cast for today. Makaiwi (R4DF) was at the fence line, Kermit (R012)and M&M (R020) were fronting #1707, and Benny (RE74) was at #1708.

The Digas were out and about on the North Shore and upper east side, and reported La'akea (RK82) at the elbow, Turtle Bay, and RI37 at Clissold's Beach, Laie.

12-30-2012 DB Dailies:

On my first look at Rabbit Island atd 0718 in the rain and gloom I saw a vague shape at the left side of Rocky Right Beach. When I got back at 0830 it proved to be Kolohe (RW22) and Buster (RV08), tucked into the base of the cliff. They would remain there all day.

Also at 0830 I found Aukai (RL12) once again wedged into some greenery high on the beach at the right side of RRB. She too remained all day.

On a pan at 1136 I found that M38 had joined Kolohe & Buster. All were in snooze mode when I departed.

From 1148 until 1156 there were a couple of unwanted visitors to RI. DOCARE was called, but there was no response.

Team Billand called at 0715 with the report of Benny (RE74) and Kermit (R012) together fronting #1707. They advised that Kermit has begun his molt. Benny would be run off at 0820, however he hauled out again fronting #1708 at 1129.

The Billands reported Makaiwi (R4DF) fronting #1816 pavillion at Nimitz Cottages at 0755.

The Billands reported M&M (R020) hauling out to join Kermit at WP.

Dera called at 1300 to advise that R5AY had been seen, once again at Bath Tub Beach, Laie.

Team Billand reported Kerby (RW08) at Maili Point at 1517.
