Albatross Encounter Photo Galleries
Male Gibson's wandering albatross banded on Adam's Island. Old colour band (Red 965) broke so was replaced with Red 73E. After breeding with the same female Gibson's wandering albatross in 2001 and 2003, his mate died and he was a widow on the breeding grounds every summer between 2005 and 2008. He finally re-mated in 2009, but wasn't successful at breeding that year, and having made the breeding attempt, took this breeding season off to recover. Last sighted in Kaikoura in May 2010.
