10/2/2016 DB's Dailies: Kawena,RG32&J/F @ Rabbit Island, Buster @ Sandy Beach, Pohaku@Paradise Cove, Kekoa@Maili Point, Ka'ale & RW02@20 MIN

At 0722 I found RG32 snoozin’ in the grass behind Seal Rock Inlet. He would later move down for the day, showing me his 60% molt.

 Also at 0722 I found the same J/F Unknown that has been there fronting 1BS for several day. Still no confirmed ID but hopefully the NOAA gang will go out again this week. Cass is a distinct possibility an she needs her vaccination.

 I’d been constantly panning the island in hopes of finding Kawena (RH36) again, and at 1110 on one of those pans, there she was, just moving up into view from behind the Rocky Right Beach rocks.

She could very easily been there all along and out of my line of sight, or maybe she hauled out. Only Kawena knows. I’m very happy to say that her large, left side “NE6" (N36) bleach was clearly visible , and readable. Unfortunately, it can barely be seen in the photos.

 Team Billand reported Pohaku (RO28) on the rocks between Paradise Cove & Lani’s this morning at 0613. At 0930 they found Kekoa (RK72) , once again at Maili Point.

 At 1115 came Barbara’s call reporting Ka’ale (RH32) & RW02 at the 20 Min mark on the west side KP trail.

 Marilyn & I responded to Sandy Beach at 1719. She had received a call about an animal there. As it turned out it was Crappy Cove (SB), and it was Buster (RV08).

 Team Billand kept getting failures when attempting to send me their day, so no luck for tonight. Their info and shots have been sent to Donna so hopefully, you read all about their day on the blog in the morning.
