8-11-2013 DB's Dailies:
At 0550 we arrived to find Irma & Kea in snooze mode, right where they had been last night, mid beach, 150 ft west of the east end fence. They would do a feed from 0557 till 0623, and then with Kea in the lead, headed for the water for a swim session from 0800 until 0956. The entire swim was with the waters behind their starting location. Irma lead the way to the water front rocks for a water feed at 0956. There were 4 additional feeds and a tide pool session and a swim to the east beyond the eastern perimeter. Fortunately the returned to the SPZ to haul out.
At 1036 I found Kainoa (RN04) at the far left end of the beach at Rabbit Island. He was the only visible resident today.
At 1150 I found Kaiwi (RK96) at Buster Flats. Speaking of Irma’s little girl... today is her 2nd Birthday !!!
Team Billand checked in at 0646 with the report of Pohaku (R028) once again at Secrets.
At 0848 they reported Ewa Girl, again at Wind Sock.
At 0900 the Billands found M&M (R020) once again at Kalaeloa Campgrounds.
Also at 1300 the Billands advised that they had received word of an animal around the Yokes area. They could not find the animal on arrival, but witnesses identified the animal by it’s bleach, "N20", which is RL42.
Dana called at 1419 to advise that Kolohe (RW22) had arrived to join Pohaku at Secrets approximately 2 hrs ago (1200). ID was by his right side natural bleach.
Dana called again at 1518 to advise that Haupu (RB24) had been sighted on Kauai.
