Royal Cam is a 24-hour live stream of an albatross nest during breeding season. 

Our Royal cam pair this year is GO and WO.

GO is the male albatross and WO is the female (named from the coloured bands on their left leg).

Their fostered egg was laid on 5 November 2017 and hatched on 22 January 2018.
