Caption: Light-mantled sooty albatross (Phoebetria palpebrata) on its nest. The head of another albatross is at lower right, obscured by the grass. Breeding pairs of this seabird mate for life. Although this is a small albatross, it still has a wingspan of nearly one metre. It uses its wings to soar on the winds of the southern oceans, where it feeds on fish and squid. Photographed on South Georgia.
