Afternoon All,

Happy World Penguin Day.!

Worrying time for all of the Penguins though as the ice caps are melting due to climate change. Sad

A very grey old day here some light rain showers earlier and the wind keen and colder, hopefully it will be brighter and sunnier tomorrow to get the gardening done.

Have a good day everyone.Very HappyLinked Image

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Shows how much I know about Penguins. I had thought they lived near the South Pole and had to tramp for about three weeks to get to the sea and all the while the chicks were left huddling together awaiting the parents return with bellies full of fish. Now it seems they have given up trekking in favour of colonies near the sea - but when the ice breaks, the colony pitches into the sea. Very sad.Sad
