      BIRD experts were baffled at how an off-course albatross came to land in a Somerset garden – thousands of miles from its normal

      The bird, an endangered yellow-nosed albatross nicknamed Albert, is normally found near the remote island of Tristan-da-Cunha,
      in the south Atlantic.

      Hugh Harris, who found the exhausted bird on his drive in Brean, Somerset, has been told it is the first time the species has
      been seen in Britain. He took the bird, which has a two-metre wingspan, to a rescue centre from where it was later released.
