Birds at the moment


I thought i would write breifly on what birds of note we have spotted lately on our Albatross Encounter tours ( 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 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 which is always a welcome visitor.
