White-flippered Penguin in Otago

Postby andrewcrossland » Sat Mar 23, 2019 10:01 pm

My son and nephews sent me this pic today, of a White-flippered Penguin they found on a sandy beach at Karitane in North Otago. They took it to the Kaitiki Point Lighthouse penguin rescue centre as it was under weight and vulnerable to dog attack. Interesting for this little fella to have ventured so far south....
