After our amazing nighttime visit in search of thousands of slender-billed prions returning to their nests, we discovered New Island in daylight. We spent the morning getting acquainted with rockhopper penguins, black-browed albatross, and blue-eyed shags, among many other bird species that nest in this private preserve. In the afternoon, some of us hiked across the island to see a gentoo penguin colony while others arrived there by ship, which was repositioned to meet us at the end of the hike.
