10-24-2013 Lesley Update

Diane & I headed out on a mission to find R5AY - we combed all her haul outs from Kualoa Point to Malaekahana, but we didn't find her.

At Malaekahana we saw a seal out on goat island and while we were comtemplating doing the crossing to Goat Island, Diane got a call from Michelle Jordan, a new volunteer.
Her husband had gone out to the island earlier, saw and documented it. It was T21M 

We met half way with Karen Turner, and checked Kahuku together.
It was getting late so Diane and I headed to Waialua, & Mokuleia and Karen went back to check TBR.

In Waialua we found RB24 "Hauupu" after a hotline call from Sherry Iona. The seal was in front of her house. "Hauupu" is doing well on her molt, still wasn't able to see her belly to see how far on it was so I'll stick to the ~ 5 to 10%.

We drove out to bb Mokuleia, walked back and forth but did not find RN58 "Luana". 

Driving back we stopped in Mokuleia to check the spot where RI37 "Bessie" was yesterday, saw lots of honus but no RI37.

Todd Russell reported a seal on Kaneohe base, in a new coat. Photos were taken but as of this report they were not yet received.

 She's getting alone into her molt
