The young wandering albatrosses that have been growing all winter are learning to fly and will leave the island in the next few weeks.

Today is my first Bird Island anniversary. I arrived here exactly a year ago today! It is scary just how fast the time has gone! In another 10 weeks, i shall be half way through my time here! I'm currently very busy with fieldwork, but this should start to ease up soon as the last of my Southern giant petrels finish laying eggs and the same with the gentoos. So i shall try and write a bit more then. Here are a couple of pictures to keep people amused until i get a few more minutes to spare.
