Hi Birding-Aussers,

Just thought some of you might be interested to know that we had a stunning
adult CHATHAM ISLAND ALBATROSS on our pelagic trip out of Cape Town on

This was the last bird we expected to see here in South Africa, and with
recent sightings of Buller's and Salvin's Albatrosses out of Cape Town as
well, all that remains now is the Campbell Island Albatross to complete the
Australasian suite of albatrosses seen out of Cape Town.

There are some very poor video grabs of the bird on our website at under the "recent rarity photos" section.

Yours in pelagic birding.
Trevor Hardaker and John Graham
