The cameras were updated a few weeks ago but this morning is the first time the new feature has been used.

The penguin breeding season is always very popular with RZSS members and visitors, and the zoom on the camera means they can get closer to the action as eggs are laid - and hopefully chicks will hatch later in the year.

There have been more than 2,000 views on the website so far today and 79,000 since the updated camera went live on March 19th.
