9-28-2013 DB Dailies:Irma&Benny@KBP, Kea@SB, Buster@BH&SB, Aukai&Duke@RI, Rocky@Kaimana, M&M@WP
At 0545 I found Irma (R010) & Benny (RE74) , still at Kaupo Beach Park. They had obviously overnighted. I adjusted the SPZ and they remain. Checked the pair at 1836. They are still there.
At 0609 Marilyn reported Kea (RN46) foraging amongst the rocks at the right side of Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. She would lose sight of him at 0655, when he headed out.
At 0614 I found Buster (RV08) doing 10 minute dives at Blowhole.
On my 0730 Rabbit Island check I found Duke (RA12) & Aukai (RL12), 60 ft left of 1BS.
At 0939 Ocean Safety reported an animal at the east end of Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 0946 I found Buster (RV08). I cordoned him off, and he remained until 1331 when he decided to relocate to a spot fronting the Half Point rocks. I responded and redid the cordon.
Volunteer , Alison called at 1240 to advise that Kea (RN46) was just hauling out to the water front rocks to the left side of Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. Marilyn, Gayle & I arrived and we put up the SPZ and Kea remains. He entered the water at 1802, and was last seen foraging within the cove at dark.
Team Billand called at 0655 with the report of M&M (R020) fronting #1944, White Plains.
