Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
These images were taken during a trip to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. I arrived in Ushuaia from the UK via Buenos Aires in mid-March 2011 and stayed at the Tolkeyen Hotel 2 kms west of the town. I also did a cruise east down the Canal Beagle to the Penguin colony on Isla de los Pajaros. This is 75kms from Ushuaia. I also flew north to El Calafate, Southern Patagonia. I then drove north 350kms with Santiago Umberti and expert on Argentinian birds to explore the area around Meseta del Strobel (Strobel Plateau). I stayed at the Estancia La Angostera in the Valle del Rio Chico. An excellent base to explore the Patagonian Steppes. On the 26th March I then joined the M.V. Plancius for a 6 week trip to Madeira via Antarctica, South Georgia, Gough and the central Atlantic Islands of Tristan, St Helena and Cape Verde. The whole trip lasted 10 weeks.
