9-22-2013 DB Dailies: Kea@SB&AD, Buster@SB&BH, Duke&Aukai@RI, Makaiwi@KoOlina, Kolohe@Electric Beach
It would be 0724 before the first animal was seen, though we had been on it since dark and early. Kimo called with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at Buster Flats. We had checked the AD to Sandy Beach but nobody found nuthin’ Thanks to Marilyn & Kimo for lots of trudgin’ .
At 1007 Kimo called from Blowhole to advise that an animal was briefly on the beach at Sandy Beach, but departed. There was no one there when I arrived. That was only the first chapter of the story. At 1258 Ocean Safety called to advise of an animal hauling out to the main beach, Sandys. When I arrived at 1310, the animal was once again, gone, however a witness said it had a N21 on the side. KoOlina Diane would later report an animal foraging at Blowhole. Another dollar on Buster.
At 1057 I finally found Kea (RN46) foraging in the tide pools just east of Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. I would lose him at 1120.
At 1202 I found Duke (RA12) & Aukai (RL12) fronting 1BS on Rabbit Island.
At 1406 Marie reported that she had found Kea (RN46), newly hauled out, 150 yds east of the AD wall. Marie reported that he relocated 50 yds west at 1520. She redid the SPZ.
Team Billand called at 0730 to advise that they had spoken with a guy who saw what was probably Pohaku, by description, at Banyans.
Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) at KoOlina, at 0740.
At 0947 the Billands found Kolohe (RW22) at Electric Beach
