Albatross Update – June 2018

0 Comment

Its been a cold winter, but all 13 chicks are doing very well. Royal cam chick weighed 8.0kg this week on day 156.
The heaviest was 11 kg and the lightest was 7.2kg.

The 4 Albatross chicks on view from our viewing observatory are weighing between 8 – 9 kgs and are starting to grow their adult plumage. Great viewing lately with the cold wind, Its what Albatross love and makes for easier flights around Pukekura “Taiaroa Head”.
