Penguins, Rothera

Some photos of the Adelies around base. They are always fun to watch (including going past the office window on occasion). They seem curious, though it is mostly just because they are short sighted and attracted to anything walking around (or oil drums). Two waddled onto the pitch during our Christmas Day football game and another did a length of the runway during the New Year's Eve 10km (5.5 laps of the runway)

 Adult around 'The Point' (a small area we can walk round, a very pleasant after dinner stroll)

 Young bird around the point

Well, at least if two join in the football it will be fair (photo: Tim Moffat)
