Next was a run to Makai Pier at 0610 where I found an overnighted T990 right where I’d left him last night, on the east side of the pier. He would remain all day.
On my first look at Rabbit Island at 0617, I found 3 animals huddled in the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS. When I got back to the pier at 0900 all 3 had moved down onto the beachfront incline. They would prove to be Kolohe (RW22), Duke (RA12)& Kaiwi (RK96). Duke would enter the water at 1051, and at 1100 attempted to haul out to Kolohe & Kaiwi, but Kolohe intercepted him at the water line, and after a few words, Duke returned to the water. He would haul out to the far left end of the beach at 1107 where he remained the rest of the day. Kolohe & Kaiwi would remain at 1BS.
At 0730 Team Billand reported a swimming head, foraging off shore of Nimitz Jetty. They lost it at 0745. No ID was possible.
At 1554 they called with the report of RIP (RR70) a Maili Point.
Diane G., called at 1125 with news that Karen Turner had found a molting Ua Malie (RT10) & R5AY at separate locations on Kaihalulu Beach, Turtle Bay. If I'm not mistaken... last time 5AY was seen was back in June? ( at least that's what I referenced from the blog.... but this isn't a "real" database).
