Two banded Black-browed Albatross were seen on the June 1st pelagic out of
Portland, Victoria. These have been identified as being banded by Henri
Weimerskirch's research group in the Kerguelen Archipelago some 5,700 km
from the location of the sightings. Both birds were banded as adults 9 and
15 years ago, respectively. As these birds take several years to reach
maturity they are likely to be much older.
Henri also says that he has ten juvenile Black-browed Albatross from
Kerguelen fitted with satellite tags which are currently off the coast of
Kangaroo Island and New South Wales.

All the best,
