West Point Island, West Falklands

Our first landing of the voyage was West Point Island in the West Falklands, a private island that is now largely a nature reserve. We visited the the Black-browed Albatross and Rockhopper Penguin colony at the "Devil's Nose," where the two species nest on a steep hillside surrounded by rocky cliffs and tussock grass.
