Watch the northern royal albatross at Pukekura/Taiaroa Head on Royal Cam.


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

This season (2021/22) we are watching OGK (Orange, Green, Black) and YRK (Yellow, Red, Black) who are incubating a fertile egg which was laid on Tuesday, 9 November 2021.

Last season’s Royalcam chick, Tiaki, can be found on the tracking map.
