Ci-dessous, ce que je viens de copier sur le forum de Terre-Neuve !
Des Albatros ont été observés récemment en Angleterre en Norvège et aux Etats-Unis ! ...
" Something is happening in the N. Atlantic this summer - especially in the albatross department.
An immature Yellow-nosed Albatross was picked up exhausted at Brean in Somerset, UK, on 29th June. It was recuperated overnight and released back at Brean Down on 30th June. Amazingly the same species was photographed off the Norwegian coast c.1100 miles to the northeast at 15:00 on 28th June. An adult was picked up exhausted in New England, USA on 28th April.
Quote from "Birdguides.com" "It is possible that this species, which breeds no closer than Tristan da Cunha the South Atlantic, may have arrived in the northern hemisphere in some numbers this year".
You won't find it in Sibley, but is in Nat Geo and Harrison's Seabirds
