I've just added a set of photos of the four species of albatross that breed on Macquarie Island. These are the Wandering Albatross, the Grey-Headed Albatross, the Black Browed Albatros and the Light-Mantled Sooty Albatross. The 'Sooties' are the most populous with over 1000 pairs visitng the island each year.

Macquarie Island is about half way between Australia and Antarctica, deep in the wild Southern Ocean.
