We don't get to see the penguins much these days. During the day they are out fishing and even in the evenings not many come ashore. This is normal behaviour and we delighted with the condition of the penguins. They appear to be doing just fine!
This wee girl is a chick from this past season, raised by Odd Simen and Butterbell and she has come back. She was not feeling very well and was a little on the skinny side but she clearly had learnt how to catch fish. She had an infection she was treated for, was released but was back within a a week with a sore throat. She remembered how to eat nicely and after she was well again, she was released again. The main thing is she knows how to catch fish and she knows where to go when she is feeling unwell. See you round, little one! And well done.
We don't see so many of these and when we do they are usually in trouble. These wee guy came to us in early May and was not only in an unsafe place but really, really late with his moult. They are such gentle creatures and so polite. Please excuse the wobbles in the video, it ain't easy to manoeuvre a fish into the bird while also holding a camera!!
