5/30/2016 DB's Dailies: Sadie&Pup,JU & UM@ Rabbit Island, Pohaku@CIP, RL42@Makua Cliffs, Nihoa@Camp Mokuleia

Tough observation conditions for Rabbit Island today. Too much rain and minimal visibility. I found what must be carried as an J/U on the left rock flats. Yesterday it was Kainoa, and might well be today, but I just couldn’t see well enough to prove it.

 Initially I couldn’t see Sadie &Pup (D#33), but at 0810 I glimpsed them in the shallows at the left end of RI. They would haul out for a feed and a snooze, and then back to the water. The would be 2 additional feeds and another water session.

 At 1002 an U/M hauled out of Seal Rock Inlet and moved up into the Morning Glory. Again, I was never able to see well enough to call it anything but an U/M.

 Marilyn called at 0844 with the report of Buster (RV08) at China Walls. ID was by his V38 tag. He seems to have something new on his right shoulder. Can’t quite tell what it is, but will keep an eye on it.

 At 0700 Team Billand reported Pohaku (RO28) foraging off shore of Campbell Industrial Park.

 They found another forager at 1020. This time it was RL42 off shore of Makua Cliffs.

 Lesley&Kimo checked in at 1757 with the report of Nihoa (R912) at Camp Mokuleia.
