This was our second visit to Bull Point, at the southern tip of East Falkland. The journey involves a weekend out of town; one day to travel down and another to travel back. The southern half of East Falkland is known as Lafonia. It is very flat and covered in white grass. This makes a good surface in summer but can be tricky early or late in the year since several of the white grass flats can become very wet and boggy. There are also a few ditches to cross which can catch out the unwary or inexperienced 'camp' driver.
Like our earlier trip (see here ) we stayed overnight at North West Arm House and travelled down to Bull Point the next day. There were several colonies of Elephant Seals on the beaches below the tussock grass around the Point. However, they were all females or very young males. The adult males having left the Islands in search of food to build back their strength following their busy summer breeding activity.
