The black-browed albatross or Mollymauk (Thalassarche melanophris) from the albatross family (Diomedeidae) spends almost its entire life in the air over the Southern Ocean. We were able to photograph these wonderful birds in Saunders, one of the Falkland Islands, where a large colony of this species is situated.

On Pebble Island, one of the Falkland Islands, one occasionally encounters "immigrants" - including theErect-crested Penguin (Eudyptes sclateri), which is actually at home on the New Zealand Bounty Islands and the Antipode Islands. It belongs to the genus of crested penguins.

From Stanley, the main town on the East Island of the Falkland Islands, it is still quite a distance before you can get to Volunteer Point by land rover. Here you can marvel at a larger colony of king penguins.
