11/20/2014 DB's Dailies: Kea@SB, RK36,Duke,UF&UU@RI, Makaiwi&Haupu@WP, Benny@Yokes, RL42&UU@Makua Cliffs

Kea was gone on my 0610 Sandy Beach check. I picked up the stuff and continued on. Barbara V., hung out until 8 something, and I perched my butt on a park bench until 1030. I then did a check of Kea’s other possible hangouts, and when I got back to the outfall at 1051, there was Kea, snoozin’ on the outfall. A fisherman said he had arrived just a couple of minutes before. I redid the SPZ. Thanks to Melanie & Gayle for all the usual checks today.

 On my 1st Rabbit Island check at 0736 I found RK36 80 ft left of 1BS. When I got back for my 2nd look at 1133 I found that Duke (RA12) & a juvenile female I was not able to ID had joined RK36. Out on the far left end rocks I also found an U/U, adult sized animal with a new coat, that never allowed me to get an ID, though I suspect it was Kolohe, but ?????

 The highlight of the day came at 0655 with a call from Team Billand. They reported Makaiwi (R4DF) between the fence line & Tower#1 at White Plains. Thanks to surfer posse members John, Mark & Rich for putting up signs. Makaiwi has returned from her Kona stay. Welcome back !!

 At 0850 the Billands reported the arrival of Haupu (RB24) to Tower#1 White Plains.

 At 1509 they found Benny (RE74) at Yokes. At 1546 the Billands reported RL42 and an U/U they were not able to ID, at Makua Cliffs.

 Dana called at 1929 to advise that she had received word from a KP visitor today that reported seeing a molting seal with possible rope at the hind quarters. Nothing more at this time. Hopefully, more will be known in the morning.
