Falkland Islands: Setllement at Carcass Island

This is my first postcard from Falkland Islands, an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean on the Patagonian Shelf. It's a British overseas territory, and United Kingdom and Argentina both claim the Falkland Islands. On this postcard you can settlement at island with very interesting name - Carcass Island. Name comes from the ship HMS Carcass, which surveyed the island in 1766. Because neither cats nor rodents live on this island, there is an abundance o small birds, both in number and variety.

This beautiful stamps are:
Southern Right Whale Dolphin, from set Marine Life, issued on 09.11.2012.
Magellanic Penguin, from set Penguins, issued on 21.11.2013.

Thank you very much Wolfgang!
