hi all
for the second day in a row i have been delighted to see a fairy penguin 
frolicking in the surf at bondi.
yesterday around 2pm one was in ankle deep water darting in and out of a small 
gutter on the wash within metres of my feet.
today around 10am one swam right past me out the back while i was having a body 
bash. it popped up a few metres away and hung around for 10 mins or so, much to 
the amusement of the surfers.
for some reason my report of yesterday's sighting was not posted; perhaps the 
bird came back for another chance at fame.

thanks again to everyone for all the tips on lenses.
