Rookery of Emperor penguins.

A general view of the Emperor penguin rookery, probably near Cape Crozier.

Between 10 September and 24 October, Royds and Koettlitz had travelled to the south-west with Evans, Quartley, Lashly and Wild. Their aim was to leave a record at Cape Crozier, Ross Island, for any relief ship to find. On this journey a colony of Emperor penguins was discovered, and among them were several which were nursing chicks.
