    Looks like scavenging below flock on right. And I am probably not seeing it right but looks like a couple of pieces of metal lower right?

    I'm struggling with the scavenging - whereabouts do you see it please @Lennoxville ? I think that the metal is simply an unusually square

    piece of rock with white poop on it - or have I got the wrong thing please? 😃

    Yes that was the rock I was looking at. Is it a dead chick in the circle just above 2 chicks at bottom?

    Yes - sorry to say that it is indeed the remains of a large chick.

    Are the adults hatching eggs there?

    @AVGVSTA It's a good question. We don't see King penguin eggs very often as they are hidden under the skin fold you see above their feet. That's why we cannot say whether they're incubating eggs or warming up little chicks who aren't able to stay on their own yet.
