Two weeks into my residency on the Falkland Islands (1985) I was on a survey boat heading south towards, but not as far as, Antarctica. A little way out the sea became rough . . . and I became ill. After a couple of days down below in my cabin I eventually got my sea legs and went back up on deck . . . there all around the boat and sometimes just a few feet away were dozens of these wonderful Black Browed Albatrosses.
