Our second and last day in the Falklands was spent in and around Stanley. The “town” is really a couple of streets, with cheerful houses behind:

People are very British:

We saw several Rufous-chested Dotterels/Plovers:

The splendidly-named Dark-faced Ground Tyrant is the local flycatcher: tyrant

Great fun was had trying to spot the Magellanic Snipe, even when they were only a few metres away:snipe

No such problems with the Turkey Vulture, which smells extremely well through the hole in his nose:turkeyvulture
