We awoke to breezy conditions in Committee Bay by Keppel Island, the site of a mission in the mid to late 1800s. Some of us went for a long hike while others landed at the settlement and explored the historic buildings. We were treated to good views of dark-faced ground tyrants, long-tailed meadowlarks, and canary-winged finches as we learned about the history of this location.

After lunch we landed at Grave Cove on the main island of West Falkland where we enjoyed great views of the gentoo penguin colonies at the site. The tide was out so we were treated to the rich intertidal life of the Falkland Islands as well.
