1/23/2016 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi,Kainoa,RG32,Buster&J/F@Rabbit Island, Aukai,Ka'ena,RW02&Kimo Kai@Ka'ena Point, RIP&Benny@Maili Point, U/U@Campbell Industrial Park, Nani@Moku Nui

At 0926 I found Kaiwi (RK96)&Kainoa (RN04), right where they’d been yesterday, snoozin’ in the Morning Glory fronting 1BS on Rabbit Island.

 In more or less the same location , right of 3BS , I once again found Buster (RV08)

 On a routine pan at 1024, to check on Kaiwi & Kainoa, I suddenly spied a tiny little creature peering down from high up near the cliff, directly above their location.
It was RG32. I’d had no clue that he was up there until he rolled to show his bright belly. He would move down and join the other two for the day. I was one of those rare occasions when I’ve seen close to other animals. He usually stays away from all the bigger kids.

 Again on a routine pan at 1044 I found a newly arrived animal just coming out of Seal Rock Inlet. It was what I want with all my heart to believe is Cass, but as in all the previous occasions I’ve got to go with a very green, unknown , juvenile female.

 Marilyn & Lesley were at the End of the World again today, for the usual Ka’ena Point , Saturday trek. At 0959 they found Aukai (RL12), on the Back Beach, and 3 animals playing just outside the Main Pool. At 1019 the first of the 3, which would prove to be Ka’ena (RO40) hauled out to the Runway. At 1114 the other two, Kimo Kai (RT12)&RW02 hauled out together at the Main Pool.

 At 1334 Team Billand found RIP (RR70)& Benny(RE74) together at Maili Point. It has been a while since they’ve been reported hangin’ out together. I guess the quest for chicks trumps old partnerships.  
Joanne (Hotline) called at 1404 to advise that the Twogood Kayak guys had reported “K61" at Moku Nui. The ID was by tag, and they sent a photo (thank you Diga). It was another Nani (RK60) day at the Mokes.

 Team Billand called at 1654 to advise that they had received a photo from one of their fisherman posse, showing an animal lolling in the shallows at Campbell Industrial Park. They photo is inconclusive. They arrived and reported the animal no longer there at 1749.
