Penguins, Seals & more Falklands wildlife!

Not really been on DT properly now for a while. As some of you might know my husband is currently down in the Falklands and whilst he was home on his RnR over Christmas and New Year he brought the camera back with him so I could see some of the pictures he took whilst he was down there. Now I am not going to lie he took hundreds and no I am not going to post them all because I think the Mods would go crazy! But I will post some of my favourites and then a link to the rest of the album of the ones I picked out on my photobucket account.

My hubby didn't actually realise when he was taking these pictures that this is one of the rarest birds on the planet. The Striated Caracara.

Gentoo Penguin

More Gentoo's, there is a guy in the middle so you can see how close to the penguins you can get down there.

King Penguin's
Baby King's

A Seal

Magellanic Penguin's, these are very shy penguin's and you can't get close to them at all.

Rock Hopper Penguin

Falklands Landscape


And this is the link to the whole album. I did watermark all of these on PB but for some reason its not copying that across on here. These are literally but a few of what my hubby took. If you do decide to look through the album I haven't labelled what is actually in most of the pictures as it would just take to darn long but there are pictures of a Chinook wreckage and ammo boxes and used shells from the Falklands War 30 years ago.

Ah, Zeblar, this brings back many memories.

My hubby was actually in the Falklands War. He also went on a Penguin Walk as the lads called it and brought back many wonderful photos of the wildlife. He was lucky enough to see a pod of Pilot Whales and took photos of the wrecks when they were all shiny and new.

My it doesnt seem like 30 years ago. But then the Gulf War doesnt seem like 20 years ago.

I just hope the Government of today doesnt cave into the bully tactics of the Argies now they are mumbling about the Falklands and how much they want them once more. Too many of our lads lost their lives in the regaining/protection of these beautiful islands for them to be given away, against might I add the islanders wishes.

The problem is if the Argies decided to give it another go I don't think it will remain such a "small" war this time. It could have massive worldwide repercussions if it was to kick off. Plus they better wait at least 3 weeks if they do decide to kick off because my hubby will be home for good then!

My Dad was nearly in the Falklands War too but he got sent on his techie's course instead so he got away with not going down. I am thankful he didn't have to go though because it was such a brutal war for our guys. Especially the Army. Poor sods, I certainly don't envy what they had to go through.

Undoubtedly some countries would think it their place to make a big fuss over it all.
As far as I am concerned, they can have their arses kicked as well if they make too much noise.

Hubby was supposed to travel on the Atlantic Conveyer but due to the Herc having engine problems missed the sailing by hours. He then missed it at Ascension Island due to the Herc having to ferry freight. A couple of my hubby's friends were transferred from the Atlantic Conveyor to another ship just before it was hit. Talk about lucky.

Hubby was one of the guys detailed to clear the minefields, during and after the war. He said you could mark them one day and if you left them and returned the next day, due to the soil conditions they had moved and you had to find them all over again to destroy them.

The Argies boobytrapped loads of stuff too, Hubby was detailed to clear a foxhole and his mate went inside and found a trip wire. No problems, erm, well actually there was, because as soon as he started to sort it out my hubby noticed he was standing on another. He had to go into the foxhole with his mate and diffuse it from under him.

Oh what fun!

NOT!

Let's hope the Argies do not ever think to take the Falklands by force or by any other means for that matter. Or else my Grandson may have to go kick their butts and I will not be best pleased if he has to go to war, ever. (he is joining the Army shortly)

Whenever I see a Rock Hopper I think of the Penguin with the plastic necklace in 'Happy Feet'. I know, sad, but I do.
