Sweet Sundowners at Ocean Echo

Early last week (the calm before Hurricane Joaquin sent lightning showers our way), Anguilla was treated to evening after evening of sensational sunsets.

Serene and pristine, there’s no better place to take in an Anguilla sunset than at Ocean Echo on magnificent Meads Bay…

What makes a sunset even sweeter?

Owner Dillon’s famous Rumzie, perfectly sweet, full of rum and garnished with a cherry and slice of orange, Dillon will never share his secret recipe!

Nature Explorers Anguilla Celebrates World Shorebirds Day

Like many others across the world and in particular, the Caribbean, Nature Explorers Anguilla was out on our wetlands this past weekend counting birds. The 2nd Annual Global Shorebird Count was conducted on 4 wetlands across the island on September 5th and 6th, 2015.

Over the two day period, 1633 individual birds and 33 species were recorded. West End Pond (IBA) was a hot bed of activity as literally overnight it seemed the population of migrant species exploded.

We will provide a full report in the upcoming Fall edition of The Salty Wing. Many thanks to Molly Nutting for volunteering to be the officially recorder.

Nature Explorers Anguilla will be open throughout the off season as we experience the wonders of the Fall Migration. If you are on island and would like to take a tour, email us at jackiec@natureexplorersanguilla.com or call us at 1.264.584.0346 to schedule your tour.
