Albatross Update – December 2017

Well it has been very warm in Dunedin over the last week, which is not too great for our Albatross at Taiaroa Head.

For the 2017-18 season, 141 birds have been recorded/spotted. we have had 33 eggs laid, 6 of which have been placed into the incubator, 2 eggs have been broken, 30 of which have been candled and 29 of those are fertile. So not a bad start to the season for the Albatross.Also, remember Moana, her parents are back this season and are now comfortably incubating their egg.
