Agreed, wonderful set of images.

I think the first image is of black-browed albatrosses, the others are all also albatrosses I think (I'm not sure about the third shot, may be a young skua instead?). Most are juvies, so I can't ID them, but the other adults strike me as more black-broweds.

Of course, I may be completely wrong here. Living in the northern hemisphere, which I believe at last count contained just ONE albatross (a lonely specimen called Albert I think) albatrosses are not a common species to me.

Great shots and I agree on the need for ID.

I've tagged the names on Flickr. In order (from memory)...

1) Black-browed albatross
2) Southern giant petrel
3) Brown skua
4) Southern giant petrel
5) Black-browed albatross
6) Southern giant petrel (but might be a Northern with the darker head?)
