The wind and swell died away for good today, and the sun came out in the afternoon: surprisingly pleasant conditions out on deck. A fine day for a spot of birdwatching! With four species of albatross and six species of petrel, it was a great day to hone our species identification skills which will undoubtedly get sharper as we spend the next three weeks exploring the Southern Ocean.
