Just to update Steve Clark's message; John Peter, Jon Starks and Geoff Price
went penguin viewing in south-western Victoria on Tuesday 25 Feb and report:

Erect-crested Penguin 1:  At Twelve Apostles, look down on the beach from
the westernmost viewing platform and - voila!  Seen about 1300.

Erect-crested Penguin 2:  Details as per Steve Clark.  Seen c.1830.

Royal Penguin:  Details as per Steve Clark, beyond boatshed.  Seen c.1730.
Note: this penguin appears intolerant of human presence - please try to
avoid disturbing it.

Cheers,  Hugo.
