8-7*2013 DB's Dailies: Irma&Kea@AD, Pohaku&Kolohe@Secrets&PC, Kekoa@RR, RI37@Sunset
At 0600 we found Irma&Kea (R010) right where we’d left them last night, 150 ft east of the AD Wall, within the SPZ. They would move down and enter a small , low tide channel at 0709, where they remained all morning, doing 2 feeds, and some snoozin’. They would enter the deeper waters just to the east of the rock flats at 1223 and swam until hauling out again to their starting point at 1256. Kea’s muzzle and belly are beginning to whiten up. The log showed another swim ranging outside the east perimeter, but the fortunately returned to a location within the SPZ. There were 3 additional feeds. LOL a conversation with Gayle this morning, i was saying wow, Kea's belly and lips haven't started to whiten yet.... Gayle mentioned how big he's getting and how skinny Miss Irma is becoming.
At 0839 Team Billand called to advise that their posse member Diane had reported 2 animals at Secrets. Dana would calledvat 0847 to advise that it was Pohaku (RO28) and Kolohe (RW22). She also reported their departure at 0930, only to call again at 1008 advising that the duo had now hauled out to Paradise Cove.
At 1130 Dera reported RI37 at the Sunset/Backyards area on the North Shore. ID was by tag and posterior dorsal scar. wonder how this girl is doing.... i worry about her.
