Photo by @bertiegregory. Whilst some species are heavier and taller, the wandering albatross has the biggest wingspan of any bird on the planet. Each one of their wings is wider than I am tall giving a total wingspan of more than 11ft. This enormous wingspan and some clever flying techniques make them the master of open ocean flight. It’s estimated that a single individual can fly 15,000,000 miles in their lifetime. We were lucky enough to encounter this beautiful bird during our 6 day crossing to the Island of South Georgia in the South Atlantic Ocean. Shot for a new @natgeo online series coming soon!
