African Penguin Posing on Boulder Beach, South Africa by 


South African Penguin (Spheniscus demersus) also known as the black footed penguin, taken at Boulder Beach, South Afrcia.
This colony started up on Boulder Beach about 30 years ago, when a couple of pairs of South African Penguins arrived. Since that time they have multiplied. They have set up house in an urban area, and many of them choose to build thier nests in people’s gardens, under outside stairs and the like. Some people welcome them, but as with any wildlife in urban areas some people find them noisy and messy and wish they would go away. The penguins have, however, brought many international tourists to the area and on one of the beaches viewing platforms have been built to accommodate visitora and protect the penguins. Never-the-less many of the penguins still visit the local swimming beaches and trot up the sand betrween sun-bathers to make their way to their urban nest-sites.
