Everyone Loves Penguins A Look At Everyday Life For An Adelie Penguin

Adelie Penguin taking it easy on the Antactic Peninsula in 2019 a trip of a life-time.

This time last year, 2019, we were lucky enough to travel to the Antarctic Peninsula and witness first hand the amazing wildlife. Not surprising perhaps it was the penguin colonies that were the most impressive amongst so much that was mind-blowing. To be able to walk and sit amongst these most charasmatic birds and see them going about their daily lives just feet away was a life time dream come true. Huge thanks to all at Quark Expeditions that made this possible and allowed us to enjoy the beautiful landscaped and wildlife in total safety and warmth with their superb crew and kit. We would love to return and can't recommend Quark highly enough if you are planning an Antarctic or Arctic trip they are simply superb. Here are a tiny few of the thousands of photos we took on one visiyt to an Adelie Penguin colony a fantastic nevr to be forgotten experince.

Can you imagine sitting on an egg for weeks in these conditions?

Though you are not alone of course lots of neighbours for company.

Though sometimes even an Adelie Penguin needs to be alone.

Though not all your neighbours can be trusted, stone theft is common.

Caught red-handed or should that be black-beaked?

Looks like snow...again, life in summer for the penguins.

What do Adelie Penguins do to relax? Ride icebergs of course.
