A rookery overflight by a Skua always causes the Gentoos to react, usually by screaming.
Penguins establish rookeries where the snow has cleared. At times this means the rookery is quite a distance from the actual shoreline.
During the cruise we experienced snow, rain, sleet, high winds (>60 knots, or 69 mph or 111 km/h), and 8 meter seas. Here snow falls on Ocean Nova as she rests at anchor off Useful Island.
