The redevelopment of a penguin enclosure at Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary has been unveiled.
The £75,000 refit has enlarged the enclosure for the resident colony of Humboldt Penguin, a vulnerable species, and the new additions who arrived earlier this week.
It now has a deep-dive pool, waterfall and additional nesting boxes to encourage breeding behaviour.
