Winter is a time when most of our Little Penguins are spending longer out at sea, sometimes being out on the water for up to a month before coming back to land. However when food is still readily available some penguins will attempt to breed! For the last month penguins have been busy nest building and courting, with some eggs and chicks starting to appear in the colony. Breeding in winter is a gamble as conditions can change suddenly, but our older penguins in particular are up to the challenge to try and boost their breeding success. These penguins pictured successfully raised two chicks last season and after being away for the best part of a few months are back at it, cozying up their burrow for the season ahead!
