Just a quick update from our recent trip to the 44’s.Jodi, one of the group, found this image of a Yellow nosed Albert flying around the 44’s whilst going through her images.
Also I have moved the Nov dates forward to Dec 3rd -10th for our next 4day pelagic - still a few places left to make this trip go head.

Jodi also took this shot of the same bird at the Forty Fours which also shows the 'mascara' around the eyes.

Two people have now changed their minds, so 3 places are now available.
