As we wandered along one of the boardwalks of Phillip Island, we saw this Kelp Gull in the distance.
This post is for Wild Bird Wednesday
Kelp Gull (Larus dominicanus)
Pacific Gull (Larus pacificus)
When we reached one of the lookouts we saw this pair of Pacific Gulls on a rocky outcrop.
Little Penguin (Eudyptula minor)
This Little Penguin was taken on the mainland at St Kilda.
On Phillip Island we were lucky enough to see one in its burrow, they have a Penguin Parade at sunset. Go to the link below to read more about the penguins, and the relocation of people and their homes from the penguin breeding grounds, these being given back to the penguins. This was made as a TV series.http://www.360degreefilms.com.au/assets/files/penguin-island-presskit.pdf
The water looked clear, cold, and rough.
