These are little Gentoo Penguins and that's not swirling snow they wading through but sand.
Gentoo penguins like to set up home on rocky shores or sandy tussocks inland but with open access to the sea.
They spend all day feeding at sea on krill or fish and occasionally squid and this lot are home on Sea Lion Island in the Falklands. They are the fastest birds underwater, swimming at speeds of up to 36 kilometres an hour.
