5/21/2015 DB's Dailies: Sadie&PO2,UU@RI, Pohaku@Maili, Nihoa@Maipalaoa, Kimo Kai@GR, RF28 Fishhook Removal, 5-21-15 Y/N, RIP,Ka'ena,RW02&R330@KP

At 0635 I found Sadie&PO2(RB12) doing a feed at the water on the left end of the beach on Rabbit Island. They would be gone when I got back at 0851, but hauled out to the left end for a feed and a snooze at 1003. There were two additional swim sessions, 1130 - 1155, 1225-1335.

 At 0851 I found an U/U just hauling out to the left end rock flats. It would remain barely visible all day, in a depression amongst the flats, only hauling out at the end of the day, and then only showing me it’s right side, with no markers. Sorry.... another U/U. Maybe tomorrow.

 Gayle called midday to advise that she was batting zero on her check of the quadrant.

 Jack At The Bay called at 1317 with a report of a “ drive thru” at Hanauma Bay. An animal had come in the “backdoor channel, swum the beach front, and exited out the “cable channel” at the right side, and was last seen headed out toward Witches Brew. There was no further ID info. Thanks Jack.. Ya’ Done Good..........Again !!!

 Team Billand checked in at 0633 with the report of Pohaku (RO28) in Maili.

 At 0728 they found Nihoa (R912) on the Uleawa’s side of the Maipalaoa Canal. The Billands reported at 1715. that it looked as though Nihoa was departing, but instead she moved further back into the canal.

 At 0809 the Billands found Kimo Kai (RT12), once again at Maili Guard Rails.

 If you go to: , and scroll down a bit, you will see that RF28's hook was successfully removed by Dr. Greg and NOAA personnel. Per the site there seems to be news coverage so check your favorite news dogs.

 In the Yesterday’s News department Lesley sent shots from her trek to The End of the World, as reported yesterday. She found RIP (RR70),little brother Ka’ena (RO40) & RW02 at the main pool, with Squinty (R330) at the Runway.
