Lots of penguins moulting at the moment. Should have taken photos of the feathers outside the burrows. Instead, here's a feather taken after we got home.

Chick now 5 weeks old. Given how busy the spit is over the summer holidays, it's an absolute miracle it's survived until now. All fingers and toes crossed for the next week!

Cowboys on quads ripping up the nesting area and the dunes. Three dotterels, but no sign of any eggs or chicks. They did start calling around the roped off area. Will aim to rope off a much larger area before nesting season next year.
