After the snow had
finished the penguins stood up and shook themselves, the chicks
that had been sheltering under the parents were well and seem to
be resenting the fact that mum or dad had stood up and weren't keeping
them quite so snug any more!
This parent is awaiting
the return of its partner who will have been out at sea fishing
for the krill that these penguins feed almost exclusively on, catching
it further inshore than other penguin species. The parent
that goes fishing fills themselves up on food and then collects
extra in their stomach to bring back and regurgitate for the chicks.
