    LOve the Rockhopper penguin shots. They look like aliens in one and little kids playing jump in the other 🙂

      The northern rockhoppers are probably even cuter, with longer manes. They are now deemed a separate species and mainly found on Gough Island (a dependency of Tristan da Cunha) and Tristan da Cunha. We went to a place in the Falklands where one or two had been reported and didn’t see them there but one person found on in one of his photographs.

      The more places you go to, the more extra places you learn about that are tempting to visit. Lots of places in Northern Scotland, perhaps especially Orkney and Shetland, that I could spend more time in.
