At 0708 I found a gang of 3 all snuggled into the Morning Glory, around the driftwood log, 40 ft left of 1BS, on Rabbit Island. Each would move down independently, but all remained in the group through the day. They were RM38, Kolohe (RW22) and though it took most of the day to get the ID, Aukai (RL12), thanks to her girdle bleach.
On a pan at 0942 I found a partially visible U/U behind the water front rocks of Rocky Right Beach on RI. I was never able to see enough to make an ID.
The highlight of the day came at 1259 with a call from Gayle. I think "I hit the Jackpot" were her exact words. She had found Kea (RN46) on his first documented visity to the Lanai Lookout Cove on the right side of the Lookout. So far he has followed in the flipper steps of his older sister Kaiwi so I’ve been waiting for the day since he went out on his own. Today was da’ day ! Thank You Gayle !!!
At 0625 Team Billand reported Buster (RV08), an 80% molted Benny (RE74)& Makaiwi (R4DF) fronting #1708, White Plains. Buster was just in the process of departing.
At 1015 Lesley called with the report of an U/U at Turtle Bay. Later in the day, at 1346 she would call again with word that RI37 & La’akea (RK82) were at Right Spot’s Spot, Turtle Bay.
At 1030 Diane T called to advise that Benny was departing 1708 White Plains. The Billands would report his return, hauling out to Tower #1 at WP at 1240. At 1700 they advised that Benny had moved from T#1 back to #1708.
