3/22/2016 DB's Dailies: RM38 & RG32@Rabbit Island, RK36,Kekoa,Kolohe,Kimo Kai&RIP@Maili Point, Kimo Kai@Nanakai Bch

On my first look at Rabbit Island I found RM38 right where I’d seen him yesterday, tucked into the base of the cut fronting 1BS. He didn’t stick around long, entering the water at 0930. I did not see him again today.

 At 0857 I discovered litte RG32 just moving out of the high grass, 80 ft right of 3BS. He would move down and would depart as the tide began to rise at 1101.

 Gayle & I checked the rest of the quadrant, and found nobody else.

 At 0719 Team Billand reported the arrival of RK36 to Maili Point.

 At 0724 he was joined by Kekoa (RK72).

 They were , in turn, joined by Kolohe (RW22) at 0745.

 At 0810 the Billands ID’d Kimo Kai (RT12) foraging off shore of Maili Pt, but he did not haul out there. Instead he would haul out down the beach a bit to Nanakai Bch, Maili.

 At 1151 the Billands reported the arrival of RIP (RR70), hauling out the 3 others at Maili Pt.

 NOAA personnel responded to the location for vaccination duty, but in the end elected not to make the attempt, due to the tight grouping in a difficult rock situation.
