still laying eggs!

Well the St Kilda penguins have gone crazy laying eggs rearing fat healthy chicks and they are still doing it. Unfortunately its also time to start thinking about moult and our parents just cannot rear chicks and moult at the same time. There are a few grey looking penguins obviously in early stages of moult and we have a couple beginning to get white feathers which means they are very old and will not survive moult. Its a natural phase of their lives but sad to watch.
