Young New Zealand albatross visits nest

This 3 January 2020 says about itself:

Young Albatross Visits Incubating Albatross | #RoyalCam | New Zealand Dept. of Conservation | Cornell Lab

Young albatross returning to the colony for the first time only have the single color band from prior to their fledging. In this clip, a young albatross lands in view of the camera, eliciting clacking from the incubating adult, then heads off, back into the wind. Most of these young albatross will be recaptured by the NZ Department of Conservation Staff and given a unique set of identifying bands before they head back out to sea.
