Departure by committee
We have had some wild weather with big seas, rain and hail. These yellow-eyed penguins appear to be having a discussion whether to go fishing or not - sit on the beach, come back to the landing and finally it looks like they decided they were hungry and head away into the wild ocean. It is their home too and they are formidable swimmers - so maybe the matter discussed wasn't so much "shall we be brave and go" but having a bit of a social time before heading off. Sometimes we wish we could speak penguin to know what they are saying to each other!!
