Rabbit Island observations were very nearly impossible. I could make out three shapes through the rain. A U/U in the Morning Glory, 60 ft left of 1BS, RM38 fronting the Left Greenery, and another U/U at the vegetation line behind Seal Rock Inlet. I finally called the game on account of rain. At 1430 I made another attempt, with less rain, and was rewarded with an increase in the case. What I had thought to be a single animal, 60 ft left of 1BS turned out to be Kolohe (RW22), and another animal which I was not able to ID. There were now 3 animals up in the Morning Glory at the log, 40 ft left of 1BS. I was only able to ID Kainoa (RN04). The other two adult sized animals never gave me anything, except one was a new coat, and the other an old coat (Buster ???). RM38 was still at Left Greenery, but had rolled to show me his 15% molted ventral side. The UU at Seal Rock Inlet remained just that, however it appeared to be one of the new coat juveniles.
Team Billand called at 0806 with the report of Makaiwi (R4DF) at the east end of Iroquois Point.
At 1300 they found Haupu (RB24) at the fence line, White Plains.
At 1318 they reported a 90% molted Benny (RE74) at “Sharkbite’s Tree”, White Plains.
