5-29-2014 DB's Dailies: M38,Aukai,Pua & Kainoa@ RI, Kaiwi @ KK, Buster@WP&KCG, RIP@Maili Pt, Kekoa @ RR

On my 2nd look at Rabbit Island at 0900 I found M38 & Aukai (RL12) together on the water front rocks at Seal Rock Inlet. They remained there all day.

 On a pan at 0913 I found Pua (RF34) just hauling out fronting 1BS.

 Posse member Linda Nichols called at 1103 with the report of an animal at the Kokee Flats. When Melanie and I arrived at 1130 we found Kaiwi (RK96) at Irma’s Grotto , Kokee Flats. She would depart with the rising tide at 1303, per Linda.

 When I got back to the pier at 1238 I found Kainoa (RN04) just hauling out fronting 3BS on RI.

 At 0646 Team Billand called to advise that they were watching Buster (RV08) doing a “drive by” through White Plains, heading west. He did a couple of brief haul out checks lookin’ for chicks but continued on. They lost him. They would later get a call from WP lifeguards reporting 2 animals at Kalaeloa Campgrounds at 1042. When they arrived they found only Buster.

 At 0917 the Billands found what would later prove to be RIP (RR70) at Maili Point. He was foraging, doing 6-7 minute dives.

 At 1022 Dana called the Billands with the report of 2 animals at Paradise Cove. When the Billands arrived they found nobody.

 At 1413 the Billands advised that Eileen had called with the report of Kekoa (RK72) at the Reef Runway.
