Well done, Dave. Like you say not the best but to get a photo is great to see.
I hear them a lot and had one fleeting glimpse but no pics yet.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

I have no experience with these but i think it is a Shy Albatross. Do you have a pic of the underside of the wings?
