A chick returns
We have not seen a lot of Yellow-eyed penguin juveniles this summer but came across this one in a house with one of our lonely males: we were able to read her transponder number and behold: she had been in hospital last summer as a chick pre-fledging - repeatedly due to ongoing issues of vomiting. We persevered and released her three times - eventually she left for good and now she is back AND she already has a boyfriend. They have been sighted more than once! We were over the moon and feel that persevering with difficult cases can pay - you never know.
