5/26/2015 DB's Dailies: PO2&U/U@RI, RL42@Makua Cliffs, Kimo Kai@Guard Rails, R5AY@Laie, Benny@3 Tables, Pohaku&Pup@Kauai

Both Gayle & I were out and around in the SE quadrant, and Rabbit Island would be the only cast seen. I arrived to just birds at 0830 but at 0844 my favorite Weaner hauled out, 50 ft left of 1BS. The kid would remain there all day, and though there was some movement, I never got a look at the lower abdomen, so once again I’m at a loss as far as sex is concerned. Neither Tracy nor Thea are sure either, so at least I’m in good company. Maybe tomorrow ????

 At 0944 what would prove to be an U/U hauled out to the left end rock flats, assumed a position, and then never moved. I managed to see 2 red tags, but that is that.

 Team Billand checked in at 0958 with the report of RL42 at Makua Cliffs. At 1049 they found Kimo Kai (RT12) at Maili Guard Rails.

 Diane Gabriel responded at a 0830 call for an animal at Kokololio Beach Park, in Laie. She found and confirmed R5AY. R5AY departed at 1135.

 Diga mentioned that “E-40", which is the Benny (RE74) was reported at 3Tables on the North Shore. Jeanne Martinson respondded. Her photo confirms that Benny has lost his transmitter.

 Barbara called at 1228 with a report from Mary Miyashiro, and milleseconds later I got a call from our pal Val, all reporting the Pohaku (RO28) had just pupped on Kauai !! On paper she was due on 6-6-15, but only Pohaku knew.

PO2 weaner.... no gender, no name, no tag ... yet
