Penguin spotted on Hampshire beach

Day-trippers enjoying the heatwave on a Hampshire beach were stunned to spot a lost penguin frolicking in the waves.

It’s believed it was a jackass penguin which normally makes its home in South Africa, 6,000 miles away, reports The Sun.

Visitors to Southsea beach, near Portsmouth, filmed the penguin diving in and out of the waves.

Joanne Gordon, 35, of Aldershot, said: "I couldn’t believe it when I saw it swimming around away just six foot from me."

Earlier, the bird is said to have been seen waddling around the harbour to the surprise of onlookers.
