I had a whole blog post pretty much planned out but then this happened ….
5 weeks and 2 days after we arrived here we all finally saw our first host of penguins 🙂 These are Magellanic Penguins (known locally as Jackass Penguins) who are just beginning to return for the breeding season. This colony is about 4 miles down the road from us at Gypsy Cove, I foresee many more visits to them as they are so close to the path and so not bothered by even the very noisy disruptive Mountford Three! Now to hunt down the other species, as I cannot envisage us ever getting bored with penguins and their waddle.
There were also (basically compulsory Upland Geese) and some Ordinance from WW2
Also, tonight we have our fingers crossed that the Tooth Fairy is aware we have moved as we have had our first Falklands fallout for Max!
Do leave us your comments and feedback – we love it 😀
