Penguin couple settle in at Cornish Seal Sanctuary

Godfrey and Waddles enjoying their new home Credit: Cornish Seal Sanctuary
Two penguins have arrived at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary after a wildlife centre on the Isle of White closed after 44 years.
Waddles and Godfrey are the seventh and eighth members of the Cornish colony and the animal keepers say they're settling in well:


“They are naturally sociable birds and our residents gave them a nice warm welcome.
Just to confuse everyone Godfrey is actually the girl and Waddles is the boy, so presumably Godfrey was christened before her gender was confirmed.”
– Tamara Cooper, Animal care team leader
