Chilly Willy, is that you?
Was that a Withnail-ism there, you sly dog?
HOBOKEN!?! OOOH I’M DYYYYIN AGAIN!!!
Must have taken a wrong turn at Alburquerque.
That was a Partridge, not a penguin.
reminds me of the lone penguin in ‘Encounters at the End of the Earth’ that always makes me get choked up.
Looks like he may have blown a seal.
Let’s leave his sex life outta this!

Is it just coincidence that these birds have been turning up since trawlers have been operating in Antarctic waters south of NZ? Or are they victims of “by-catch”, tossed overboard on the homeward journey?
