10-19-2013 DB's Dailies: Irma@MB, Duke,Aukai,Kolohe,Kaiwi&Kainoa@RI, Kea@SB, Kermit@WP, La'akea@TB, Pohaku@Makua, RL42@KP Mokuleia side trail
At 0600 I found a 100% clean Irma waiting for me at the far right end of Makapuu Beach. I redid the cordon and she remains. Irma departed at 1734.
At 0937 I found Duke (RA12) & a 10% molted Aukai (RL12) together at Rocky Right Beach, on Rabbit Island.
At 1010 I spied two animals playing just off shore of 3BS on RI. They would haul out together at 1018, and proved to be Kolohe (RW22) & Kaiwi (RK96).
The highlight of the day came with a pan at 1032 to the far left end of the RI beach. There I found a little weaner with an "N0" bleach. It was KAINOA !!!! I haven’t seen the boy since 8-31-13, and was seriously stressin’ on this kid. He appears happy and well. Where in the world he has been only Kainoa knows.
At 1241 I lucked out and found Kea (RN46) just hauling out to the east side of Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. I cordoned him off and he remains. Kea departed at 1724.
Cianna called at 0715 with the report of an animal fronting #1707, White Plains. The Billands confirmed the Kermit (R012) at 0730.
Posse member Teri called at 0832 with the report of "K82" (La’akea, RK82) at Right Spot’s Spot, Turtle Bay.
Cianna called again with the report of 2 animals near Kehau’s. Team Billand found only Pohaku (RO28) when they arrived. The location was a Waikomos.
The Billands advised that they got a call from one of their posse , BJ reporting having seen RL42 approximately ½ mile before KP on the Mokuleia side, at about 1200.
Cianna called at 1536 with a report of "N21" (Buster , RV08) rolling in the shallows at Diamond Head. At the time of the call he had not hauled out, but ?????
