Silversea Expedition Cruises To CARCASS ISLANDS (Falklands)

CARCASS ISLANDS (Falklands)

Names can mislead. Carcass Island’s name is not a reminder of historic whaling days. Instead the island was named after the ship HMS Carcass which visited in the late 18th century. It is living wildlife that makes this island so special. Magellanic and Gentoo Penguins, Upland and Ruddy-headed Geese, and many of Falklands’ land birds thrive here. The island was settled as a sheep farm in 1872. Careful management over the years has protected much of the natural tussac (tussock grass) and other vegetation. View more

Most importantly, introduced rats have been kept at bay. Magellanic Penguins dig burrows for nesting and raising chicks. Adult birds can be seen making the trek between the burrows and the sea. The smart-looking black and white birds often rest and preen on the shore. Gentoo Penguins are larger and sport an orange bill. They nest in tight groups in the open. A predator of young birds is the Striated Caracara, a magnificent dark bird of prey seen swooping around the island. Tussocks of grass on the island can be a hundred years old. They, and introduced gorse, provide protection for smaller birds like the Tussacbird (Blackish Cinclodes), Falklands Thrush, and the striking, red-breasted Long-tailed Meadowlark. The first specimen of the tiny Cobbs Wren, with its short upright tail, was described a century ago from a bird on Caracass Island. It was named after a local amateur ornithologist and farmer. Cobbs Wren will be bird of the day for keen birdwatchers as it is only found at the Falklands.
