COLONY UPDATE MARCH
Webcam chick was 3kgs today so that is a good weight for its age. Another chick that is just 3 days older than webcam chick weighed in at 4.9 kgs (It turned its back on its dad which I think, is albatross for “none for me today thanks” when his dad arrived in too feed).
Toroa’s chick (the youngest this year) is also at a good weight for its age at 1.4kgs
I will wait for Colin to arrive later today to help weigh some of the more nervous chicks.
3 Albatross nest are on view from our viewing observatory, all are a fluffy white chick on its own while both parents forage for food to bring back and feed their chick.
