The chick and its chief carer, Lyndon, have built a following of loyal royal watchers who follow the chick’s every move. The Tuesday weigh-in is eagerly anticipated as Lyndon updates viewers on the chick’s progress.
Yesterday at weigh-in a competition was announced to name the chick. Fans who submit names could win a trip to see the albatross at Taiaroa Head with Coastal Otago Ranger Lyndon Perriman and Threatened Species Ambassador Nic Toki.
The winner (and the winning name) will be announced in June.
The soon-to-be-named chick will continue as the star of #RoyalCam until it fledges around September.
