Hi all

just completed a pelagic out of Stewart island with Ian of Aurora charters. All the usual s and a nice Grey-headed Albatross. I will post a pic in a few days time. A sub adult Campbell Albatross was also seen.

Please post the photos of sub-adult Campbell albatross, so I can age the bird, along with Grey-headed albatross.
