During the 10 day break in paradise, my wife and I spent much of the time relaxing on the hotel beach but we also managed a few trips to see the jungle in the south west of the island and Gabriel Island, a small island approximately 15km north of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, which will feature in a later post. Considering it was my honeymoon and I had little to no birding time, I did manage 4 of the island's endemic species: Mauritius Bulbul, Mauritius Fody, Mascarene Martin and Mascarene Swiftlet during the south-west trip. I also managed to see Mauritius Fruit Bats, Wild Boar and Short-tailed Macaques.
A number of the images I managed in Mauritius will likely feature in my main portfolio, but you'll be able to see all the keepers here over the coming weeks. For starters, I hope you like the photographs below which were all taken with an iPhone, and I hope you come to enjoy the additional experience this blog will aim to offer.
