Each go through their own unique courtship and breeding rituals. The Wandering Albatross is the largest of the group, with a massive wingspan of up to 4 metres, and is the least common. The Light-Mantled sooty Albatross is the most populous, with over 1000 breeding pairs using the island each year. The Grey Headed Albatross and the Black Browed Albatross are found on the southern end of the island. View more photography by Matt Brading here.
