Hi all,

the photograph Rob is referring to is an adult Chatham Island Albatross not
an immature Shy Albatross as it is labelled. It was a single bird that
returned to Albatross Island off Tasmania several years in a row mingling
with the nesting Shy Albatross. Thats what I heard anyway.

The photo is on page 126 of the 1986 Photographic Idex of Australian Birds-
Seabirds volume.

The mystery albatross photographed by Brent Stephenson off Kaikoura looks
like fresh adult Salvin's Albatross to me.
