Great shot but it was a pity about the fog for you.
Thanks Margaret, yes it spoiled what could perhaps have been an amazing day for photos.
It is a Black-footed Albatross, not a Black Footed Albatross. That would be quite a different thing!
I shall watch my grammar and punctuation David!
Punctuation in bird names is a pain, I can never remember "Laughingthrush" - one word or two ? It doesn't matter to them !
Pronunciation too. How do you say 'murrelet' for example? 'Merlot'? 'Mewerlet'? Or something else entirely?
