Our Snares Crested penguin has finally dropped her last feathers and was ready to go. She is nicely chubby and was eager to leave and was gone the next day after we opened the pen. She has a long way home but Snares Crested penguins are used to travelling long distances and there is food to be had on the way. She has a chip in her so if anyone comes across a particularly friendly penguin down on the islands they ought to beep her with a transponder reader. It would be so thrilling to have her found!!
