At 0727 I found what would prove to be Kolohe (RW22) just hauling out and moving up and into the Morning Glory, fronting 1BS on Rabbit Island. When I got back at noon he was fully visible on the beach fronting 1BS. After a wait he finally showed me his right side natural bleach confirming the Kolohe ID.
At 0802 Gayle called with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) foraging at Spitting Cave. She was still there, doing 7 minute dives on my 1526 check.
Much Mahalos to Gayle and Melanie for help today.
I called Linda at 1353 asking for a "backyard check" and sure enough she reported Rocky (RH58) in the tide pool at Irma’s Grotto. She said that Rocky had not been there on the previous check, 20 minutes earlier. Rocky, the blimp was lookin’ about as content a pinneped could be, lolling in the tide pool being gently rocked to and fro by the in coming tide.
At 0711 Team Billand reported M&M (R020) at #1708, White Plains.
At 0800 they found Kermit (R012) foraging off the Nimitz Jetty. At 0855 he would haul out to Wind Sock.
At 1016 the Billands found Pohaku (RO28) at Paradise Cove.
At 1159 Team Billand found Kekoa (RK72) & little sister U’ilani (RN36) together at the birth beach, Reef Runway.
At 1430 they advised that Eileen had reported the arrival of Mama, Ewa Girl (RS00) to the birth beach at the RR.
At 1418 Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) #1806, Nimitz Cottages. She was gone at 1730.
At 1504 the Billands found R912 at the Makaha Princess Condos.
Dana called at 1614 to advise that an U/U had hauled out to Right Spot’s Spot, and also advised that the SPZ had been dismantled due to giant surf in the area.
Please check the blog in the morning for the Billand’s day.
