This gang of young male penguins visited for a day or so while all their friends were nesting at a penguin colony quite a distance away. They were very tame, approaching quite happily within a metre of humans.
The date of this observation is not exact, but it was within a fortnight of the 30th Nov, 2007.

Description from Wikipedia

The Adélie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) is a species of penguin common along the entire Antarctic coast, which is their only residence. They are among the most southerly distributed of all seabirds, as are the Emperor Penguin, the South Polar Skua, the Wilson's Storm Petrel, the Snow Petrel, and the Antarctic Petrel. In 1840, French explorer Jules Dumont d'Urville named them for his wife, Adèle.
