Albatross Skimming   by Larry Lingard-Davis

This is just one of the many pleasures you have whilst in Kaikoura NZ.
I thought I would give this group of photo’s some space on RB, as the Albatross are becomming one of the most endangered species on the planet. Long line baited hooks from fishing vessels are the main cause and have a lot to answer for…..
So if you have the time, please check out the following web site. Click here
Any sales from the Albatross Group of photo’s, will be donated to " Save The Albatross " Fund.


I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    This really is a stunning photo. I truly envy you the fact that you are seeing this bird in the wild. I have only seen them on TV. It must be awesome to see their size.
