Penguin Watch

I was out on penguin watch last night. I didn’t think there would be much need, as the weather has turned cold and there has been a lot of (much needed) rain. However, there were a couple of drunk fishermen clambering over the rocks where the penguins have their nests and having a friendly word with them persuaded them to stop harassing them and go back to the snapper.

I seem to meet a new volunteer every time I go out. Last night I met Aussie Joe and the time before, I met American John, who took the picture below.
