Prion Island, South Georgia

Day 7: January 19th

"We anchored off Prion Island in the morning, and went ashore. The landing beach was covered with Fur Seals and King Penguins, a few Elephant Seals, and a few Gentoo Penguins.

The weather was overcast. We proceeded up a trail through the tussock grass to the top of the island.

Nesting on the island were Wandering Albatross, Giant Petrels, Antarctic Skuas, and Light-mantled Sooty Albatross.

We also saw numerous South Georgia Pipits, the only passerine bird in Antarctica. There were also Yellow-billed Pintails around."
