Gentoo penguin  (Pygoscelis papua papua - southern subspecies)
parent on nest with hatching chick

You can just about make out under the parent that the egg has cracked and there's an as yet upside down foot as the hatchling struggles out of its shell.

Gentoo penguins are the last to arrive on their nesting sites at the southern limits of their range. Unlike other species that nest alongside them nearer to the Antarctic mainland, they wait until the sea ice has retreated before heading for the nesting grounds.
