I finally got to Makai Pier at 1222. I found the same U/M I’ve been talking about, this time at the far left end of the beach. I also found Kaiwi (RK96) on the water front rocks 60 ft left of Seal Rock Inlet. The U/M would relocated to join her at 1305. His molt is 30%.
On a pan at 1313 I found what would prove to be Kea (RN46) at Right Middle Cliff on RI. His mysterious mission lasted 10 days this time. Welcome Home !
Team Billand checked in at 0645 with the report of Pohaku (RO28) at Depot’s, Nanakuli. Mahalos to Melina & Sarah, for being there !
The Billands found nobody at the Reef Runway in the morning, but at 1317 RR Security posse member , Wendell advised the Billands that he had see a large U/U.
Emails from DOFAW posse member Amarisa Marie, forwarding a Twogood Kayaks photo, and a bit later from THE Donna, forwarding shots of probably the same animal , confirmed an animal on Moku Nui today. Unfortunately, I must cop out with an U/U at this point, but I still workin’ on it. Anyone recognizing that scar over the left eye, say something !
A Team Billand text at 1713 advised that they were responding to a call about an animal at Iroquois Point. At 1810 they oonfirmed the IRQ animal as Rocky (RH58). They reported her departure at 1840.
