We have Photos of the Great frigatebird, Brown booby, Kelb gull, Swift tern, White tern, Hartlaub's gull, Laysan albatross, Masked booby, Brown noddy, Red-footed booby, Red-tailed tropicbird, Sooty tern.1,200 miles north-west of Honolulu, 2,800 west of San Francisco and 2,200 miles from Japan, the Midway Atoll rises from the Pacific â€“ just made for sea birds. During my stay in July 2001, on this remote atoll in the middle of the endless ocean between Asia and North America I was able to watch and take photos of the following sea birds: Flying White Tern, Red-tailed Tropicbird, Sooty Tern, Brown Noddy, Red-footed Booby, Brown Booby, Mask Booby, Great Frigatebird, Black-footed Albatross and Laysan Albatross. They all are fascinating, but the albatrosses are especially numerous and dominating in this place. I also watched and took photos of Sea Birds< in the area of the storm-buffeted Cape Agulhas, at the southern tip of Africa:Wilsonâ€™s Storm Petrel, Kelb Gull, Swift Tern, Cape Gannet, White Chinned Petrel, Hartlaubâ€™s Gull, Cape Cormorant, Bank Cormorant, Subantarctic Skua, Black Oystercatcher and the Black-browed Albatross . The global pollutionof the seas through cleaning the oil tanks of ships, oil-tanker accidents with huge oil carpets, the sinking of chemical or radioactive waste, the overfishing of the oceans and some fishing methods are threatening the stock of sea birds.
