FRESH FROM A BIRDNAPPING only a few weeks ago, Dublin Zoo have installed a Penguin webcam to keep track of its birds. We’re not quite sure if the camera is for the Zoo, or its penguin-loving patrons. The camera allows viewers to watch the Zoo’s 14 penguins play, sleep and feed at any time, night or day. We haven’t seen much activity this morning, but perhaps they’re having a lie-in.

Earlier this month, Kelli the penguin was stolen from the Zoo and later found roaming the city’s streets before she was given a gardai escort back to the penguin habitat.

Ironically, the webcam is sponsored by Mc-Vities who’s motto is P-P-Pick up a penguin – is that something the zoo should be encouraging?
