En Zud -Part One

Just back from New Zealand, we did three "Ocean Wings" trips at Kaikoura on South Island. The big albatrosses are used to human handouts as you can see here...

Salvins Mollymawk -

fun to try to get one of these in the FRAME, never mind in focus, from the back of the boat when under way...

Wandering (Gibson's) Albatross

You can't cling to a camera-and-lens AND a pair of binos AND the handrail so the binos stayed in the bag and I vowed to try to "work out" the bird identifications from the photos. But I'm basically unfamiliar with these so hope they are ID'd properly.

That takes care of some of the "big fellas"
