Birding the Scotia Sea – Jeff Higgott

Tuesday 5 December

Lying between the southern tip of Argentina and the Antarctic Peninsula, and extending east to embrace the Falklands and South Georgia, the Scotia Sea is a haven for wildlife.  Penguins nest in their tens of thousands, albatrosses and petrels effortlessly cruise by and whales are often encountered.

The incredible wildlife, combined with the stunning sub-antarctic scenery, makes this one of the most popular wildlife watching destinations.  This talk will take you on a 4000km expedition cruise visiting all the island groups in the area in search of some of the world’s most evocative wildlife and seabird colonies.
