St. Lucia and St. Vincent

St Lucia is flanked by two 700 metre volcanic plugs, known as the Pitons. Landing on the south coast, we’ll travel to the historic setting of Rodney Bay… …where our base will be the excellent Coco Palm hotel… …which serves excellent Caribbean cuisine. Along with the endemic St. Lucia Bananaquit, we’ll look for other endemics including… …the superb St Lucia Warbler… …the sought-after White-breasted Thrasher,… …and its more widespread cousin, the Pearly-eyed Thrasher. Des Cartier Rainforest is home to several endemics, perhaps the rarest is the… ..St Lucia Amazon, which we’ll hope to see in flight… …or perched after a rainshower,… …as well as the rather strange Grey Trembler. Our daily excursions will also take us into the dry forest at Grande Anse where… …the St Lucia Pewee is found… …often showing at very close range… …but always keeping a lookout for an approaching Boa Constrictor! Parrot’s Beak Heliconia is a spectacular flowering plant of the Caribbean which often provides cover for… …the delightful Antillean Crested Hummingbird, shown here perched… …and in flight feeding in flowering trees. One day we will travel south to Cape Moule a Chic… …where Red-billed Tropicbirds glide around the steep rock faces… …and often display low over the surface. St Lucia Black Finch will be one of our main target species at Anse Mamin… …whilst Mangrove Cuckoo can be very confiding on these islands.
