Things to see in The Falkland Islands: Bleaker Island
A 30 minute flight from Stanley, off the south-east coast of East Falkland, this isolated, low-lying island with wide sandy bays and sheltered coves is of interest for its large colony of rockhopper penguin, in addition to their Magellanic and gentoo cousins.
There is a large group of king cormorants, and striated caracaras are often seen. The many pools are home to large numbers of waterfowl, including white-tufted and silver grebes, and black-necked swans. The island is small and flat, so walking between bird colonies is easy.
