A ringed Albatross

While looking through the photos of my recent pelagic trip off Monterey I spotted that one of the Black-footed Albatross's was ringed with a metal ring on one leg and a yellow numbered ring on the other. Cropping the photo showed the bright yellow ring to be what I believe to be a B201 rather than 8201.  A quick search on the internet shows that around 95% of the population breed on Hawaii which is about 2300 miles from Monterey.  I have sent the information off and look forward to getting some information back on this bird.
