The rate at which they are being caught in fisheries…
means that they are losing quite a lot of their population each year,” Mr Madge said. They mate for life and some do not find another if their partner dies.
People have long wondered how this master of the skies manages to stay aloft for long periods without flapping its enormous wings, which can reach up to 3.5 metres across.
Various theories were developed but researchers now believe they have cracked the problem after attaching highly sensitive GPS trackers to a group of 16 wandering albatross, one of the largest species, in the Indian Ocean.
Scientists attached GPS trackers to a group of 16 albatrosses in the Indian Ocean.
They recorded the birds flying at speeds of up to 67mph using a ‘dynamic soaring’ technique, which enables them to fly thousands of miles depending on the wind Scientists believe they have finally worked out how the mighty albatross – a seabird capable of travelling 10,000 miles in a single journey and circumnavigating the globe in 46 days – manages to fly without expending almost any energy.
Sony SRS-XB40 has a built-in multi-coloured line light, speaker lights and a flashing strobe.
It features 24 hours of battery life and claims to be a 'mini-disco on the move'.
This enabled the scientists to measure each bird’s position 10 times a second and to within a few centimetres, providing a detailed record of their flight path.
They found that albatrosses perform a “highly dynamic manoeuvre” that involves gaining height by angling their wings while flying into the wind, then turning and swooping along for up to 100 metres.
And that juxtaposition with the seemingly light and pretty piano thing totally works.”The track has had a long shelf life, thanks in part to the 2004 movie , the Wayans brothers film that yielded this iconic scene.
