Here are some of our photos:-
What I cannot do is give you a sense of the smell but if you can imagine a lot of sardines just eaten then that would be about right!
The adult birds are quite large and make a rather risky nose dive to land somewhere near the chick. Often they are then pecked at as they try to get to feed their chick. You will notice that the scrapes/nests are around a pecking distance apart!
This parent has had a late chick, he waits while the other parent fishes. As they get bigger both parents fish leaving the chick to fend for itself.
What a real privilege to be able to see these amazing birds.
