Picnic Goodies From Fat Cat

It’s that time of the year in Anguilla…

Seas are still, sparkling a special shade of azure, you have beaches all to yourself, and it is the season of Anguilla’s national sport, boat racing, too!

With perfect conditions to laze the day away on the beach, and take in the boat races (the next boat race is Anguilla Day – tomorrow, June 1st, followed by all of the Carnival boat races in July/August), it’s a perfect time of the year for tranquil, beach picnics.

And, Fat Cat is a favorite for picnic goodies!…


Salads of all kinds, including potato salad, chicken salad, veggie and/or shrimp pasta salad and coleslaw.

A plethora of perfectly-spiced patties, roti and quiches.

Moist sweet treats, including carrot cake and brownies.

A Fat Cat picnic is a tasty picnic, indeed :-)


Seabirds Make an Appearance on Anguilla’s Wetlands

This week we have seen an uptick in seabirds on Anguilla’s wetlands. Brown Pelicans, Magnificent Frigatebirds, Brown Boobies and Royal Terns have been spotted feeding vigorously. We have also witnessed nesting activity at the back of the pond along with our first Killdeer chicks of the season. It is a great time for birding with over 20 different species of shore and seabirds seen on one wetland in just over and hour of viewing.

The Hungry Caterpillar


There are a lot of interesting bugs and caterpillars on the island at this time of year.  One example is this stunning Tetrio Sphinx.  You will most often find it feeding on the tender green leaves of the local Frangipani bushes.  In its adult form, itis a large drab grey moth that is found in the American tropics and subtropics.
