Royal Penguin: A new bird for NSW

Subject: Royal Penguin: A new bird for NSW
Date: 11 Dec 97 14:57:22 +1100
A Royal Penguin was located at Pretty Beach, Batemans Bay, NSW yesterday (10th
December 1997) The bird was taken into care this morning and will be passed on
to Taronga Zoo.  It is apparently sick and very light in weight.  It being one
of the Macquarie Island type white-faced forms in adult plumage.

Larger Penguins anywhere in NSW are very rare and as far as I know this is the
first occurrence of this species in NSW.
