When I was a kid we called them Fairy Penguins: don't know when the change was made but they are now called Little Penguins. (Yet our wrens that were officially Blue Wrens are now officially Fairy Wrens, guess every bureaucracy has to justify its existence).

These were taken last weekend. Spring has just arrived and the seabirds have started nesting on the cliffs, hope to get back soon for some shots of the rookeries.

Hey PC,

Great to see you, and thanks for sharing! Very cool, I have never seen a penguin in the wild before.
