5/4/2015 DB's Dailies: Sadie&PO2, UU@RI, BG&RT12@GR, Pohaku@Nanakuli, Ola Loa@TB, RI37@Hauula

The SE quadrant was once again a Rabbit Island kinda’ thing. On my first look at 0640 RI was Monk Seal free. When I got back at 0920 I found Sadie&PO2 just hauling out from their morning water session. They would feed & snooze away the day until entering the water again at 1255.

 On my zillionth pan of the RI coast line I lucked out and found a nearly invisible animal at the left end rock flats. Even though it would later move up, I was unable to glean any info other than 2 red tags. Yet another U/U is required.

 Team Billand checked in at 0732 with the report of BG (R303) & RT12 together at Maili Guard Rails.

 At 0748 they reported Pohaku (RO28) at Puka Pants Beach, Nanakuli. She would depart at 1430.

 At 1254 Dana called to advise that Ola had been seen with a possible hook in her chin. Diana G., had made the call, but when Ola relocated to the beach, the hook was longer visible. A passerby sent photos through Dana to NOAA, and Vet, Michelle agreed there was no hook visible. Diane’s shots show something there while in the water, but gone when she hauled out. Yet another Ola adventure. 

Diane Gabriel advised that she had found RI37 in Hauula at 1641 on her way back from Turtle Bay duty.

 At 1807 Team Billand called to advise that volunteer Debbie had called about an U/U at Makaha Surfside Condos. Awaiting further word.

 Angel Yanagahara, a colleague of Marilyn’s , at UH, sent a video and stills from a dive trip to the Keaau’s area yesterday. They spent quality time with RL42. may 3 2015

 Also in Yesterday’s News, Shannon Thompson sent photos from her End of the World trek where she found Kolohe (RW22) in the company of an U/U.

Divers look pretty close to seal, eh.
