Rockhopper penguins at Berkeley Sound
When we reached the Rock Hopper penguins we all piled out of the Land Rovers to have a closer look. The Rockhopper penguins were at the top of the cliffs, just sitting there molting ready for the Winter.
Adrian had told us that we might see a solitary Macaroni penguin among the Rockhoppers. Sure enough there he was in the middle of all the Rockhoppers.
The penguins were still and we all had a great time taking lots of pictures of them.
We were able to stand close to the Rockhoppers.
Here they are scattered around the cliff tops.
We walked along the cliff tops to see the Rockhoppers closer to the edge of the cliff.
Time for some photos of us then!
These geese flew in as we were preparing to leave.
Before we left, we did stop to take in the views.
This is the view looking out across Berkeley Sound…
…and this is where we came down to the cliffs.
Back to Murrell’s Farm
We followed the same procedure on the way back. Trevor explained that following vehicles didn’t follow the same tracks as earlier vehicles when out in camp.
We watched as Adrian’s Land Rover was bogged down in very deep mud and he backed up and went a different way through. Coming back South we stopped a couple of times to look at the views of Stanley and the hills around us.
and to look at the recently cut peat drying on the surface.
We then descended down to the farm.
