Video – Little penguins return to ocean after being treated for injuries

After spending two months at a wildlife hospital, five little penguins are back in the ocean after being released from a Sydney beach.

The birds, Footsie, Margaret, Collin, Bondi and Nigel, said goodbye to their Taronga Zoo handlers and swam away at Manly’s Shelly Beach on Tuesday morning.

They were rescued from as far as Newcastle, Maroubra and Bondi.
