We escape to the Northeast coast, a virtually unspoilt and enchanted part of the island. On our way to Des Barrar, we drive through the beautiful and ever green agricultural community of Babonneau, learning the natural history of the area.
We embark on a bumpy journey downhill to Grand Anse beach, which is a famous spot for turtle watching. Many of the island’s endemic bird species, including the St. Lucia race of the house wren (an arm chair tick for sure), the Rufus Nightjar others regional specialties and the elusive Bridle Quail Dove find refuge in this very remote habitat. This area provides the best opportunity to finally get this elusive bird on your life list. This area offers the best opportunity to finally tick this very much sought after illusive dove.
Butterflies are plentiful as well as some skippers, dragonflies and a chance at some other wildlife.
We drive through the countryside as we head out to the town of Gros Islet where we continue birding along the warm sand on the beach. Terns, seagulls, waders, just to name a few, normally show up to greet us. We end our day on the Pigeon Island Causeway to see elegant brown Boobies
