My recent trip to the Falkland Islands provided a welcome opportunity to spend some quality time hanging with Al, as in Al.B Tross, yes, lame gag and I’ve used it before…. Al of course is the Black-browed albatross, which nests on several of the Falkland Islands, my visit was to West Point Island. By February most of the chicks are well developed, some with their adult plumage starting to show through.
Once again, I’ll point out that I currently have limited internet access so if it seems I’m ignoring people via social media etc, I apologise. The images presented here have been fairly hurriedly processed on a laptop computer, not ideal, but hopefully give readers some insight into the subject and some of the photographic considerations. ~KD.
