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.

Elite, a Tranquil Lunch Escape

Tucked away on the tranquil side of idyllic Island Harbour, Elite has long been a top (yet largely undiscovered) spot for fine Italian cuisine.

Mixed salad, with Parmesan shavings…

Penne Bolognese…

Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli…

… are some of our favorites (my Dad always opts for their fish carpaccio of the day and the lobster ravioli and my sister’s pick is their baked ham and cheese panini).

Enjoyed while gazing out to Scilly Cay, a tranquility wrapped in blue view doesn’t get better than this!

The combination of serene scenery and delectable cuisine is a match made in paradise :-)

Elite is open daily and is staying open throughout the off-season.

The ALHCS Concert Band’s Sound Review 2015

The Department of Music at the Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School is pleased to present the ALHCS Concert Band in a SOUND REVIEW 2015 encore performance on Sunday September 27, 7:00 pm at the Bethel Methodist Church in South Hill.

 

The band of musicians who range in age from 10 to 19, first took to the stage on Thursday, September 3rd and have enjoyed rave reviews ever since. Under the direction of Lennox Vanterpool the band has developed a distinctive, mature repertoire and displays an enviable sound consistent with young, developing bands. Popular calls for the encore are testament to the hard work put in by our young musicians and facilitators, and the appreciation of the large, enthusiastic, and appreciative audience in attendance.

 

All freewill donations taken at the door will benefit an A.L.H.C.S. instrument purchase drive and the Dominica Relief effort now ongoing.

 

All lovers of music and especially families with children enrolled in various music programs at school or privately to attend, as the exercise promises to be both educational and entertaining.
