Lying to the northwest of the Falklands archipelago, this is one of the most picturesque outer-lying islands. In its 100 plus years of habitation it has had only three environmentally conscious owners and an absence of cats and rats, making the luxuriant, well-established hedges and trees an attractive home to many small birds such as the Cobb's wren, Black-chinned siskins and Falklands thrush. The sandy beaches, rolling hills, and low cliffs are superb platforms from which to view the multitude of sea and shore birds that either breed or feed on and around Carcass Island. These include the Gentoo and Magellanic penguin, Yellow-billed pintail and Flightless steamer duck, Magellanic oystercatcher, Rock shag, Striated caracara and Red-backed hawk.
