Albatross - SW Australia (1 Viewer)


I saw this albatross off the south western coast of Australia (Bremer bay) in March 2018. I marked it down as wandering albatross but I see online this species is actually split into Snowy/Tristan/Antipodean albatross. Could someone please help me with an ID? From the description in eBird they seem to be distinguished by range but I wanted to ask here. Many thanksE1602675-6007-42C3-A3A2-5E6B36DEB5CD.jpeg
One thing you can do is to compare bill length. Snowy has the relatively longest. Apart from that, This angle and photo quality may not allow a complete confidence in id. Any other photos?
