Fisherman films encounter with lone penguin

A LOCAL fisherman has filmed the moment he was entertained by a lone Penguin frolicking about in the warm waters off a Gold Coast beach as he setup for an early morning angle.

Glenn Gifford was fishing off the Tweed coast last Friday morning when he says he was greeted by the small, unusual visitor.

“I was fishing about five nautical miles off Tweed Heads when a Penguin swam up to our boat,” Glenn said.

“It was the last thing I expected. It hung around the boat for 20 minutes.”
