    I might just be dirt or poop, but one penguin seems to have a red spot on their chest. Possibly blood?

    No, it's not blood, it's just a blot of "krill-soup" spilled while feeding the chick (that fluffy grey ball between its legs) 😃

    That's right. Thanks for helping, Zilli. 😃

    I always thought they are dirty from lying in their dirty nests, covered with poo/mud.. but this is another option 😄

    Yes of course, and that is perhaps more likely here- I was confirming that it isn't blood, but krill dribbles from feeding or poo! 😃

    Seem to recall we saw a stain like that somewhere else a few weeks back. Great idea about the krill dribble 😄
