10 minute drive from Devonport. Fairy Colony at Lillico Beach. Little penguins are sedentary; in fact, they build a burrow and return to the same spot night after night after spending the day in the ocean feeding. This makes little penguins perfect for bird watching, but they are shy and timid birds mostly, so you need to be careful to not upset them. Here are some tips on where you can see them. Little penguins return after dark from feeding in the ocean. They gather together on the water's edge before making a dash up the beach to their burrows. if you are on the beach as they are trying to return, they may get scared away, so try not to get between the water's edge and the burrows. Also, watch where you put your feet, or stick to built paths, to make sure you do not trample a burrow or penguin. Little penguins are shy and they can be startled by bright lights and too much movement and noise from excited humans. Keep still and quiet when waiting for the penguins to return from a day's feeding and only use dim, red lights to watch the penguins.
