we went for a walk down a local beach at lunchtime and came across four little blue penguins

whilst there are plenty of these further out to sea, we rarely see them this close unless they are injured (or dead!)

and it turned these were rescue penguins enjoying some exercise in the actual sea

the two ladies were penguin carers and two of them (the penguins) are to be released tomorrow a bit further up the coast

there was something excellent about seeing them in the semi-wild like this rather than in a zoo or aquarium

soon enough it was time for them to go back in to their cat baskets
