BLACK-BROWED ALBATROSS, WEST POINT ISLAND

BLACK-BROWED ALBATROSS, WEST POINT ISLAND

We visited a joint rookery which accommodated both black-browed albatross and rockhopper penguins. Each species seemed to get on well with its somewhat strange neighbour. Here, two young albatrosses are courting. The adults already had chicks on the nests, so these would not breed properly until next year.
