At 0914 Gayle called with the report of an animal foraging at Spitting Cave. Her photos captured the right side mid body light spot that is a Duke (RA12) marker. That would not be the end of Duke’s story.
At 1000 I found Kea (RN46) & Cass (RG03) entering the water at the left flats on Rabbit Island. They would do and extended swim session , traveling as far as the caves, east of Rocky Right Beach.
At 1051 I found what would remain an U/F at 3BS. She would enter the water and begin to play with Kea & Cass at 1157. At some point Cass would leave the session. I did not see her again today. At 1258 Kea & the U/F hauled out 80 ft right of 3BS. They would be joined by Duke (RA12) at 1310, and a 10 rounder commenced. Kea hung in there getting run over by the battling, but ultimately departed with a little motivation from Duke. I did not see Kea again today.
At ColleenTxt at 0830 advised that she had gone to check on an animal that had been at Kaimana Beach last night. I had not been aware of that one. Colleen advised that all she found was wallow.
Intern Sam Murphy checked in from the End of the World at 1147 advising that she had RIP RR70) & RW02, and 2 Unknowns. No further word.
At 1200 Team Billand reported Nihoa (R912) in St. John’s Canal. She would later relocate to the Maipalaoa Canal. At 1421 the Billands reported Kimo Kai at Maili Guard Rails.
