Little (Southern) Blue Penguin

Korara

Eudyptula minor minor

Little Blues are very common around Ulva Island, with perhaps as many as 25/30 pairs coming across Sydney Cove during breeding season, as well as within the village area of Oban. Very much an inshore penguin I’ve never seen them more than a couple of miles offshore. They will often congregate in rafts of as many as 40 + birds in a boil up zone where presumably food is plentiful.

Size 400 mm

We found this juvenile which had just fledged diving, turning, swimming and  “learning to be a penguin” at the Ulva wharf.
