Meanwhile down at the penguin rookery, the nursery is thriving with the chicks just starting to lose their baby fluff.This mum has her work cut out taking care of two very demanding chicks. The parents take it in turns to go out to sea and return with a fishy meal. The adults feed the young by regurgitating the partially processed fish over a couple of hours.

Just so cute!
They are amazing, and are amazing your captures too 😉
Thanks Noke, they’re growing nicely, should be ready to go by spring.
Those chicks are so darn cute … such delightful close-ups.
Yes, especially when they’re still all fluffy. 🙂
