Sea Birds

There were an amazing number of birds out at the Chatham Rise and further south.

I identified Royal Albatross, Wandering Albatross, Buller's Albatross, Sooty Shearwater, and Northern Giant Petrel from a book up on the bridge. Here is a terrific website with info about them.

Watch the way these majestic birds take off- right at the start of this clip.
