Saunders Island, Falkland Islands
Saunders Island is the fourth-largest of the Falkland Islands. The island’s topography is unusual, being made up of three peninsulas linked by narrow necks, and three big upland areas. Today the island is run as a sheep farm, but has historical importance as the location of the first British settlement in the Falklands. It is possible to see Gentoo and King Penguins in the open dune and sand-flat area, while Rockhopper Penguins, Imperial Shags and Black-browed Albatrosses frequent Mount Richards, the highest point on the island at 457 m (1500 feet). Other key bird species are the Black–throated Finch, Ruddy-headed Goose and Falkland Steamer Duck.
