1/21/2015 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi,Kainoa&U/U@RI, RIP@WP, Rocky@DH, U/F@ Nanakuli

On my first look at Rabbit Island, at 0735 I found what would prove to be Kaiwi (RK96), 20 ft right of 1BS. She would move down and enter the water at 1001, only to haul out again just down the beach to the right, at Right Middle Cliff, where she remained the rest of the day.

 On a routine pan at 1008 I suddenly became aware of a suspicious looking rock at the water line fronting 1BS. It would prove to be Kainoa (RN04). He had no doubt been there all the time, but I was concentrating on Kaiwi just 20 ft to his right, and simply didn’t see him. He was just another rock. 

Again on a routine pan , at 1105 I became aware of a thin silver of silver belly, just barely visble behind the water front rocks of Rocky Right Beach, on RI. During one of my many pans later, the animal just happened to raise it’s head above the rocks, providing the only look I had at it. No ID was possible, but I’d say adult sized, with a new coat. Chances are excellent that it was either Kolohe, Duke or even Buster but ????????

 At 1117 Team Billand reported the arrival of RIP (RR70) to Tower#1, White Plains.

 Melanie Chun reported in from Diamond Head at 1300 with a Rocky (RH58) report. She was at the Beach Rd end of the beach, and signs were in place. Melanie thought she might well have overnighted. That was my first knowledge that Rocky was there. Malhalos Melanie & DH regular Al for the call... the signs... and watchful care !!!

 At 1631 an animal was reported at “Depots”, Nanakuli. Dana responded. An U/F designation is required. The shots are inconclusive.

 Team Billand is workin’ late with RIP at WP. Check the blog in the morning for their very long day.
In the Yesterday’s News Department, posse member Rikki Goble did the End of the World trek yesteday, and provide shots of Luana (RN58) & RW02, both at the main pool, Ka’ena Point. Mahalos Rikki !!
