Today was our final opportunity to go ashore during our epic 30-day voyage. We made the very best of it, with several landings and some people opting to stay ashore all day. New Island is home to two million pairs of slender-billed prions, several penguin and sea lion rookeries, and a black-browed albatross colony. Now a wildlife reserve, the plant and birdlife ashore is spectacular. Wardens of the Falklands Conservation welcomed us, and we had a wonderful day ashore in sunny weather.
