I thought i would write breifly on what birds of note we have spotted lately on our Albatross Encounter tours (www.albatrossencounter.co.nz). We have seen our usual plethera of albatross species (the record is still 10 in one day) but 2 days ago we saw an Antarctic Fulmar http://nzbirds.com/birds/fulmararctic.html which was only the third we have seen this year, this is something of a concern as the numbers of the Antarctic fulmars are well down on previous years.
On a more positive note we have seen quite a few white morphs of the southern giant petrel http://nzbirds.com/birds/giantpetrel.html which is always a welcome visitor.
