At 0903 I found Kainoa (RN04) snoozin’ in the Morning Glory, 80 ft right of 3BS. He would move down and remained all day.
On a pan at 0920 I found what would end the day as an U/F just hauling out to the water front rocks at right Middle Cliff, on RI. Despite a day of observations I could not confirm an iD. Maybe tomorrow ?????
Melanie was busy today, covering the SE quadrant, and taking the time to install new signage at accesses to Buster Flats, Lanai Lookout. Hopefully, it will help.
Anyone familiar with trying to get a parking spot at the Blowhole Lookout, knows the nightmare it can be, any day of the week. Weekends are many times worse. On my morning checks nobody was there. Mulitple checks by both Melanie and I , in the afternoon proved impossible. Consequently, it was not until my 1725 check that I found Kea (RN04) snoozin’ in his cove.
A call from Gayle at 1806 brought word of the arrival of Buster (RV08), who had hauled out to join Kea at Blowhole Cove. Thank you Gayle !
