2-1-2014 DB's Dailies:Aukai,Buster&UU@RI, Kolohe@SC, Makaiwi,Haupu,M&M@WP, Benny@PC, Kermit@NIM, U/F@Makaha, R5AY&Meli@TB
At 0746 I found what would prove to be Aukai (RL12) at Seal Rock Inlet. I would not make the ID until I got home to check a pit scar against my database at 1612, but it proved to be her. I think she was probably the animal at SRI yesterday, but run off before I could make the ID. Unfortunately she would experience the same fate today, being run off my two males on a orange kayak who landed at 1243. I called DOCARE , of course, but there was nobody available for a response.
Also at 0746 I found what would prove to be Buster (RV08) tucked into a small cave at Rocky Right Beach. It would take until 1356 to finally make the ID . I would guesstimate his molt at 80%.
At 0928 an U/U, hauled out to 1BS and immediately moved up and into the Morning Glory where it remained the rest of the day. I was never able to see enough to make an ID.
At 1037 Gayle called with the report of Kolohe (RW22) doing 8 minute dives at Spitting Cave. Her shots definitely confirm the Kolohe ID. He was still there on my 1441 check.
At 0700 Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) between T#1 & the Snack Shack.
At 0800 the Billands reported Haupu attempting to haul out to T#1, but being run off by a loose dog. She hung around off shore until hauling out to T#1 along side the Access Surf carpet to the water.
At 1115 Diane T called with the report of Benny (RE74) at Paradise Cove. Thanks to daughter Jenny for the ID shots.
At 1450 the Billands reported M&M (R020) arriving at T#1 at WP, to join Haupu.
Dana called at 1725 with a report of an U/U at the Makaha Surfside Condos. Awaiting further word.
