On our first landing since embarking on our Antarctica trip, we visited Carcass Island, West Falkland, a beautiful, uninhabited island in the South Atlantic. Here, we were able to get some fairly close images of the birds here. The cobb’s wren, named after Falkland’s author, Arthur Cobb, is endemic to the islands and is now of ‘least concern’ thanks to the eradication of rats from its environment. It spends much of its time on the beach or in the tussac grass. Also here, are striated caracara, South American snipe, dark-faced ground tyrant, Falkland steamer duck (also endemic), Austral thrush, long-tailed meadowlark, and upland goose.
