Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctic November 2008

  • Detailed report in pdf format from Erik Molgaard (Huge 6.7 Mbytes)

Falkland Islands, December 2006

  • After a lazy Sunday morning, we drove around the west side of East Falkland, principally to visit some of the places that we knew only as names from news reports in 1982: Goose Green, San Carlos and Darwin.  It was an opportunity to see some of the endemic species – Falkland skua – and subspecies, turkey vulture, austral thrush and long-tailed meadowlark.  We also saw several black-throated finches and blackish oystercatchers....Julian and Sandra Hughes report.

Antarctica, South Georgia, The Falkland Islands & Argentina
29 January - 21 February 2003

  • On returning to the World Discoverer, we set sail for Stanley, the islands' capital on East Falkland. We passed between Sedge and Saunder's Island, where we saw dozens and dozens of Black-browed Albatrosses from the extensive colonies along the latter's north coast, before heading to the north of Pebble Island....Richard Coomber reports.
