    What is that white bird centre top?

    Hi- Do you mean at the centre of the cliff edge? If so, it's a Chinstrap with its belly to the camera.

    Yes. I just had the impression that the neck is a bit very long and the body no black visible... Do they do this on purpose?!

    Yes, it is called 'ecstatic display', spread wings and heads up while calling... There are more of them in this position in the background.

    You can see it in all penguin species.

    It's interesting how the markings of the penguin species can work as camouflage or spotlights! It's amazing how far they can stretch, also!
