Hi all,

As an Eremaea/Birdline NSW moderator, I just received the following message:

Species:  Fiordland Penguin
Date:    9/13/2013
Site:    Tathra Beach
Notes:      On the far south coast of NSW a man walking on Tathra Beach noticed 
a bedraggled penguin lying amongst the rocks on the shore line. He immediately 
called WIRES and the Fiordland Penguin came into care. It had been injured by 
either another marine creature or a propeller and has a wound on his chest 
which is now healing well (2nd October).
Observer: WIRES

[Moderator's note (NH): This is only the fifth in NSW record of this species 
and is subject to submission to NSW ORAC]
