10/18/2014 DB's Dailies: Kolohe&Aukai@RI, Kea@SB, Right Spot@MCBH, Haupu@KCG

It was a challenging day out there today, but Missus W and I out there in the gloom. At 0730 I found Kolohe (RW22) snoozin’ in the Morning Glory, 60 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. When I got back to the pier at 1006 I found that Aukai (RL12) had arrived. She snoozed away the day at the far left end of the beach. I’ll spare you my hideous photos in the gloom and rain.

At 0835 posse member Danny called to advising that “the small one” was just hauling out to the outfall at Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 0841 I found and cordoned off Kea (RN46). As the day deteriorated Kea moved further & further up, to a point where he was completely up in the Naupaka. On Marilyn’s 1600 check, Kea had departed.

A called from Dana at 0930 advised that Tony had reported a 5% molted Right Spot (R016), still at MCBH.

Team Billand got a call from Lifeguards reporting an animal at Kalaeloa Campgrounds at 1016. When they arrived the found Haupu (RB24).

In the Yesterday’s News department, Kimo Smith sent shots from his Ka’ena Point treks, both yesterday and the day before. He found a molting RW02 at Camp Erdman, Luana (RN58) at the birth beach, Mokuleia, RK36 at Hidden Beach and Ka’ena (RO40) and a 75% molted BG (R303) at the point.

 Kea tucking away
 oh look it's a rock... wait wait ... no it's Kea.... LOL so much for braving the weather. 
 Good to see Haupu.... thanks team billand
 Yesterdays yesterday News - BG
 just a few more patches
 Little Green Luana ...... with raccoon eyes
 Luana and a fan.... i am going to give the benefit of the doubt this person is an appropriate distance to Luana.... given recent conversations on the Internet I would appreciate if people who are taking the photos please provide some explanation so there isn't any confusion as to whether is closer than the recommended safe distance.
 RW02 either has a juice box or a pack of smokes
 Camp Erdman

Aloha Grammy....

There hasn't been any MM sightings... I know Team Billand checks the beaches daily with hopes of finding her... We can only keep our fingers crossed that she is off island getting some rest and will return soon.
Thank you for your concern and mostly support of the hawaiian monk seals
