10/12/2015 DB's Dailies: Aukai,Kainoa&UU@Rabbit Island, Kolohe@Lanai Lookout, Rocky@Kaimana Beach, RL42@Makua Cliffs, Pohaku Off Shore, Germaine's Luau Grounds, CIP

On my first look at Rabbit Island I found an U/F up in the Morning Glory, 3BS. When I got back at 0858 the animal was still there. I’m certain it was the same U/F from yesterday, at the same location. Finally, at 1130 she moved down and for the first time I could see Aukai’s (RL12) right shoulder pit scar. She would enter the water during one of the many squalls, but returned to her 3BS Morning Glory spot at 1335.

 At 0911 Kainoa (RN04) hauled out to join Aukai at 3BS.

 At 0937 they would be joined by another animal which I’m forced to call an U/U. It arrived with dumping rain, and after a lengthy rain episode I found that Kainoa and the U/U were gone. I saw neither again today. Substantial rain brought an early end to my Rabbit Island day. At 1140 Gayle called with the report of an animal at Buster Flats, at Lanai Lookout.

At 1142 she confirmed the Kolohe (RW22) ID by his right side natural bleach.

 At 0756 Brandi advised that Rocky (RH58)was at Kaimana Beach. Colleen & Christian both advised that Rocky had departed between 8-9. A call from Ocean Safety at 1554 advised that Rocky was back. Colleen’s photos confirm the ID and show substantial progress on her molt. Unsure of percentage without seeing other angles.

 Team Billand checked in at 0844 with the report of RL42 , once again at Makua Cliffs.

 At 1140 the Billands advised that they had Pohaku (RO28) foraging off shore of Germaine’s Luau Grounds, Campbell Industrial Park.
