Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross

Atlantic Yellow-nosed albatross

Thalassarche chlororhynchos

This bird was magic to the birders of southern Sweden, and tragic to the Danish. It was first seen flying south at Domsten Skåne Sweden July 8th 2007, possibly nearer to Denmark than Sweden. The bird was "caught" in Øresund and near Malmö it was stoped by the bridge to Denamrk, there was no way out of Øresund. The bird sadly refused to be seen by Danish birders and flew southeast of Skåne and was never seen again. These films was made by Hans Larsson.
