Setting Off On A Huge Adventure Tierra del Fuego, Argentina and Antarctica





Today we set off on a huge adventure, flying from the UK to Argentina and then on south all the way down to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego! We swap Autumn for Spring and look forward to an amazing array of birds, wildlife and scenery. We have ten days to explore the southern Argentina and hope to enjoy some of our most wanted birds in the world including the huge Magellanic Woodpecker, many years ago Sir David Attenborough presented a wildlife documentory from Tierra del Fuego and knocked on a tree with two rocks, this "donk, donk" immitated the call of the woodpecker and in it flew! There then followed a wonderful film of the woodpecker playing hide and seek with Sir David peeing around the tree trunck looking for the other "woodpecker". Now we have the chance to look for this very same species and can't wait! Of course there is so much to look forward to in this far off land, Andean Condors soaring over huge Andean peaks, Dolphin Gulls in the harbours and masses of waders along the beaches. The scenery looks to match the amazing birds and we will do our best to post photos here, on Twitter and Facebook.

Our great friend Jayne is helping us keep an eye on emails and updating the blog where possible, please be patient if you email us it might not be possible to get a reply to you quickly, but we will all do our best.
