As an Eremaea/Birdline NSW moderator, I just received the following message:
Species: Fiordland Penguin
Site: Tura Beach
Notes: On the far south coast of NSW a woman walking on Tura Beach noticed a bedraggled penguin lying amongst the rocks on the shore line. She immediately called WIRES and the Fiordland Penguin came into care. It had been injured by either another marine creature or a propeller and has a wound on his chest which is now healing well (2nd October).

[Moderator's note (NH): This is only the fifth in NSW record of this species and is subject to submission to NSW ORAC]
