This is a quick taster of our trip as we set sail tomorrow. We have been staying in the Hotel Tolkeyen and all these images were shot in the grounds or on the beach in front of the hotel except the cormorant. That was photographed on the Beagle Channel trip.
I am not yet sufficiently familiar with this genus to be 100% sure of the species.
These geese are simply gorgeous against a blue sky – fairly common.
Positively abundant in the Beagle Channel but too many were flying away from us not parallel.
I spent over an hour with this bird waiting for it to fly……… I am unhappy that at 1/2000s the wings are still blurred but otherwise it is acceptable. Shot handheld with my 400mm F5.6 + 1.4x TC. That is the longest lens I have with me.

Have a really wonderful trip! These birds are a great start, I would say. Love the geese; yes, they are gorgeous…
Nice start to the trip, Andrew. Some fine shots and the geese are lovely. The 400 appears to be serving you well and much easier to lug around too. Bon voyage. 🙂
Thanks Steve. We are enjoying The Last Breakfast. The geese seem popular! I’ll be in touch when I can.
Andrew, I am so happy to see a post from you and the wonderful photos. I agree with Rod. The geese are gorgeous. And the caracara is excellent with both wings out stretched. The 400mm is taking some great photos or rather YOU ARE taking some great photos with the 400mm.
Thank you, Yvonne. The 400mm is working overtime. I suspect the 70-200 will soon take over. Happy new year to you.
Happy New Year to you and Mrs. Ha, as well. Both of you- take care and please be safe!
Wonderful photographs. I love those geese!
Thanks Rod. They are rather easy on the eye.
Nice to see you getting some value – I loved birding in South America – where everything is just about new…. have a great trip mate… and a Happy New Year.
Thanks Alister. HNY to you both, too.
