Penguins are B B B British!!

Falkland Islanders voted overwhelmingly to remain a UK overseas territory over the weekend which means you won't need a visa to visit the island's fantastic penguin colonies.
I painted these pictures after visiting the islands in 2006. King Penguins really are great fun to watch. We camped on Saunders Island, which was where the rock hopper penguins featured on BBC's Spy in the Huddle were filmed. Click here to see how the photographers got up close to film them.  We saw rock hoppers too when we stayed there. It was a great trip, we even spent Christmas day there.
There were also Gentoo Penguins on the island.
