This species breeds on both Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island. They
are characterised by the amazing ability to fly at high speed, looking for all
the world like jet-fighter aircraft. They can perform high speed manoeuvres ,
swooping and rolling as they go. Sometimes they fly as perfectly synchronised
pairs as part of courtship. These image were taken on Ned’s Beach on Lord Howe Island
in late November and early December.
