Walked across the low tide sand to Diamond Island just because it's fun to walk to islands, but turns out it's a Little Blue Penguin colony! It was riddled with burrows. Didn't get a good photo of a living penguin as I didn't want to harass them, so there's a feathery belly just visible in the burrow in the second photo.

Description from Wikipedia

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.
