The Albatross of Prion Island

Prion Island is a small island just off the coast of South Georgia, a much-larger island probably best known as the resting place of Ernest Shackleton.

It’s not easy to get to Prion Island, nor cheap. You need a boat to get you there, typically an Antarctic tourism vessel.

I hope to visit these parts one day and not just because they’re home to many thousands of King Penguins.

They are also home to the Wandering Albatross. No other bird has a wider wingspan and no other bird is as captivating to watch as it soars on the Antarctic air currents.
