Hi All, 

Saw the penguin and seal at about 12ish today. It was in the same 
spot but no longer in a hole, being out and about more towards the 
west than reported to me. We didn't approach too close but judging 
by the Little Penguins I've seen I would say it has pretty much 
finished or is VERY close to it, wouldn't be suprised if it went 

If you are planning a trip I'd suggest going tomorrow morn. The 
enormous lump of lard that is an elephant seal was still on the 
beach, as were the Sanderlings, Turnstones and Pied 
Oystercatchers and what looked like a white-fronted Tern. Only had 
very brief and very distant views of the latter so I am not certain. 

Happy birding,
