9-27-2013 DB's Dailies: Irma&Benny@KBP, Buster@BH&SB, Kea@SB, Kolohe&Pohaku@Secrets, M&M@CIP, Rocky@Kaimana
At 0545 I was on the road. At 0600 I found Irma (R010) & Benny (RE74) together at Kaupo Beach Park. I cordoned them off and they have remained. On my dark check at 1840 they were still there, and moving up.
At 0744 I found Buster (RV08) doing 10 minute dives at Blowhole.
At 0837 Ocean Safety & Diane Tekai called to report a new arrival at Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 0946 I found Buster fronting the "Half Point" rocks. I cordoned him off, and he remains. Gayle picked up the stuff at 1720. Buster had departed.
Gayle called at 0947 advising that she had found Kea (RN46) at Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. As soon as I was done with Buster, I went there and we cordoned Kea off. He has remained the rest of the day. Kea entered the water at 1654 and began foraging within the cove. Gayle and I lost him when he moved outside at 1754, but posse member Stacey called at 1841 to say that he was still in the shallows in the cove. I last saw him , in the dark, at 1848.
Posse member Christian sent photos of an animal at Kaimana today. I think I can barely make out a bit of her left fore flipper beach in one of his shots.
Team Billand called at 0836 to report Kolohe (RW22) and Pohaku (RO28) together at Secrets.
At 1415 Team Billand found M&M (R020) at Palm Grove, Campbell Industrial Park.
Lesley did some investigation of a report of an animal in the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, yesterday and today. "N36" was mentioned in the call , but is that a bleach (RK36), or a tag number which would be U’ilani. Though no conclusive proof was found, a report from one of the people she spoke with called it a "big" seal, and a later report put U’ilani in Keehi Lagoon today, leaving a large possibility of the mystery animal being RK36. Tomorrow ????????
Irma and Benny
