MACARONI PENGUINS NEAR COBBLER’S COVE

MACARONI PENGUINS NEAR COBBLER’S COVE

Whilst some walked over the cliffs to a Macaroni penguin rookery, the rest cruised round by zodiac where we enjoyed watching the penguins use the surf to leap onto the rocky shelf on the beach. Sometimes it worked, but several times they had not regained their balance before the retreating wave swept them back into the water. And this was on a calm day.
