Today's dailies are brought to you by Team T&D, Lesley and Team R&B💕. Lesley's Ka'ena update is part two of the dailies.
Team R&B did their usual checks and found one seal in the outfall, snacking or trying to find a snack. It was none other than Kaale RH32. They noticed him coming up on the rocks to get at something. They couldn't tell what was there, maybe a tako trying to get away. Kaale left the outfall heading to haul out at a nearby beach. They headed over and saw him on shore.
They walked towards tracks they spotted a seal swimming along shore heading in the same direction.Just as they got to the site there was RG28 Lefty landing. He was very vocal and loud. They looked around to see if there were any other seals he was reacting to but there were none.
Team R&B headed back to check on Kaale, while there they could see another seal had joined Lefty at tracks. It was RN14 Kalani! Happy to see this boy, Team R&B called the hotline to inform. Just as a side note Team R&B got an amazing photo of a ray jumping!
At one point they saw two more seal in the outfall but by the time they got there they were gone. Their best "guessimate" that one was RN14 and the other Kekoa RK72. They saw a seal landing on the rocks at a nearby beach. It was Kekoa Alii RK72, laying there snoozing on the rocks looking quite handsome.
Team R&B decided to take a drive to KoOlina and was thrill to see a seal on shore with a zone set up. There lay the "royal lady" R1KM/R1KN. Team R&B has become very fond of her. They describe her as beautiful, chubby and sweet. Everyone was respectable of the seal. R1KM has three cookie cutter shark bite scars on her chest.
After leaving KoOlina Team R&B made one more stop at a west side beach. When they arrived they saw some dude with a big fish. Then a seal was hauling up on lower rocks and the dude threw something at the seal. The seal flipped flopped about on the rocks, and then dove into the water hole, looking back at the guy. Team R&B yelled out to him to Stop! They approached him and the seal came out of the hole and hauled back up but was very skiddish. Turns out he threw fish guts for her to eat it was RL70 Leina. They explained not to feed the seals, and they pointed out how she was spooked. He understood, thankfully. They saw RH76 Kala mid high rocks and RW02 PvKauai at the seal inlet area.
Meanwhile on Molokai Team T&D spent their last day getting some R&R finally. They did see one last seal on this trip an untagged adult male. He spent the entire day on the beach getting his share of R&R.
