Light-mantled Albatross

A true ocean wanderer, only ever visiting land to breed

Our Expert Says… "Unlike other albatross species, these don't seem too bothered about following the ships closely, so when spotted they tend to do a "fly-by"! Interestingly it's quite common to see them at sea in pairs. What we don't know is whether these are actual breeding pairs or just individuals who have "teamed up". Either way, it's unlike the solitary habits of the other albatross species away from land."

Also known as the light-mantled sooty albatross, this species is arguably the most graceful of all the albatrosses in flight.
