With this in mind, we’ve compiled 15 images of the most photogenic birds in the Falklands. Some were taken by you, some by us, but every one of them was lovingly photographed during our exciting Falkland Island voyages.

The fantastic bird photography of the Falkland Islands

Few places offer as unique and abundant a selection of birds, particularly seabirds, as the remote sub-Antarctic archipelago of the Falkland Islands.

This South Atlantic island chain’s wealth of winged life has made it a favorite among birders, photographers, and birdographers (technical term) the world over, drawing thousands every year – and no doubt supporting a great deal of the camera market.

With this in mind, we’ve compiled 15 images of the most photogenic birds in the Falklands. Some were taken by you, some by us, but every one of them was lovingly photographed during our exciting Falkland Islands voyages.
