Penguin Update

Dion Hobcroft called me today to let me know that the Erect-crested  
Penguin at the Twelve Apostles is still present. Although he went on 
to say that it does remain hidden for long periods at a time. Coming 
out of the vegetation once or twice each morning and afternoon. It was  
seen yesterday (Monday the 3rd March) and is reported to still be in 
heavy moult so is likely to stay a little longer yet. 
This must be the most viewed penguin in the world?  What with the  
hundreds of Birders and thousands of tourists that have managed to see  
it so far. 
I haven't heard anything about the Royal Penguin, although from what 
people are telling me it must still be present given the state of  
moult that it was in on the weekend.
