Penguins via burrowscope

Trust Ranger, Linden Brown, has checked in on some blue penguin / korora burrows in Charleston and found penguins paired up and preparing for the breeding season.

As the days get shorter and we dive into winter, penguins are coming ashore more often in preparation for the breeding season.  Linden has been for a look through one of the Charleston kororā colonies and found a few pairs home.  Over the next couple of months we will begin to see more and more pairs mating up and some eggs in the not too distant future.

Photos show pairs in a burrow using a burrowscope and in a nest box.
