7-13-2013 DB's Dailies: Irma&Pup(D#9)@AD, Kaiwi@SC, Buster@SB, RIP&Pohaku@Secret Bch
At 0600 we found Irma & Pup (R010) (D#9) already in what would be the tide pool except at this point in the tide there was no tide pool. Witnesses available said they were already in the water when they arrived at 0540. They remained there until hauling out from 0655-0710 for a feed, followed by a snooze from 0714 until 0750. At 0857 with the pup in the lead they began moving down again, doing another water session in the now high tide , tide pool at 0808. I had to make a Sandy Beach run, but when I got back at 1042 they were technically still wet, but on the fringe of the tide pool doing a feed. A check of the log book showed at Irma & Pup did another 2 hr swim in the tide pool, and did 2 more feeds.
At 0814 Team Billand would call with a report of 2 animals at Secret Beach, KoOlina. Per Karen Banes at 1038 it would prove to be RI (RR70) and Pohaku (RO28).
At 0852 posse member Susan called with the report of an animal at Spitting Cave. Gayle would confirm the Kaiwi (RK96) ID, at 0953.
At 0951 Ocean Safety called to report an animal just hauling out to the east end of Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 1000 I found Buster (RV08) on the beach. I got him cordoned off and he has remained the rest of the day. Buster departed at 1734.
At 0915 Marilyn called from the Waianae side Ka’ena Pt trail where she and Lesley found R912 at the 20 min mark. When they got to the point at 1114 they reported Kerby (RW08) at the runway, Ka’ena (RO40) at Ka’ena’s Pool, and RL42 on the beach at Ka’ena’s Pool. On they way out at 1205 they found that Benny (RE74) now with R912.
