KING PENGUINS, SALISBURY PLAIN

KING PENGUINS, SALISBURY PLAIN

These birds are well-named. Despite moving in a more ungainly manner on land, there is a regality about their behaviour and order and it was a privilege to be able to walk among them. Note though that we were instructed to, and did keep a distance. However, if the penguins chose to walk up to us as they did, that was their prerogative.
