Emperor Penguin © Owen Smith

For the second time in history, an Emperor Penguin was seen on the Greater Wellington coast. I got there just in time for sunset, after getting a lift from my kind neighbour to the Kapiti Coast from Wellington. Most people kept a fair distance, and all dogs were on leads - let's hope it can remain that way until it swims off into the sunset again.
