We had an excellent visit to the site.


Leo found this Machu Picchu Viscacha. It's always a treat to spot these quiet gentle residents as they blend in perfectly with their surroundings.

Bringing in the Machu Picchu animals for the night to protect them from predators. 30 March 2016.


While birding in the gardens of the Machu Picchu Inkaterra Hotel an Andean Cock-of-the-Rock suddenly crashed into a window and fluttered to a bush below. That wasn't how we wanted to see Peru's National Bird. We stayed back and soon it moved about. We were so happy when it recovered and flew off across the river. 31 March 2016.
