At 0743 I found Kolohe (RW22) & Kea (RN46) together at the log, 40 ft left of 1BS. Both would later move down allowing the ID, and remained all day.
On a pan at 1037 I found an U/W , which I want with all my little bald heart to believe is Cass, at Rocky Right Beach. Unfortunately, I could not get a decent look at the ventral side. I did however see a light area on the posterior right side which suggests Cass, but ?????????
Team Billand checked in at 0627 with word that Benny (RE74) had overnighted once again at White Plains.
At 0850 Buster (RV08) hauled out near Tower#2, but would later move over to join Benny.
The Billands advised that Benny had entered the water at 1627, but remained just off shore, hauling out again further down the beach, but galumphing back to an expanded zone , where he started, at 1646. Buster remained through the whole thing. Barbara said Buster left at 1741. Benny remains.
Thomas Sperandeo shots received at 1050 confirmed Nihoa (R912) 100 yds east of the hotel at Turtle Bay.
Team Billand reported Pohaku (RO28) at Maili Guard Rails ate 1110.
A call from Dana at 1205 brought a plethora of news items. In addition to the already mentioned Nihoa sighting , La’akea (RK82) was also seen near Elbow Beach, TB, she advised that Don was responding to R5AY in Hauula, and a confirmed RI37 was at 3 Tables, on the North Shore.
At 1645 the Billands advised that they had gotten a call from Dana , about an UU in Ewa Beach. At 1535 Robert confirmed the Rocky (RH58) ID, at 186F.
