And then there were chicks!
28 August 2020 - Very happy news - we have had our first chicks. The season started 2 weeks ago with the hatching of 4 little chicks, by last week the count had increased to 13. In addition, many penguins are sitting on eggs, so we are expecting more to have hatched by next week.
