[Update:- NB: This was an April Fool joke. -cvj]
Well, I learned recently* that the BBC wildlife program makers have done it again, breaking new ground in scientific discovery while making a new series. Quite amazing this time. From the Daily Telegraph website:
The BBC will today screen remarkable footage of penguins flying as part of its new natural history series, Miracles of Evolution.
“But then the weather took a turn for the worse. It was quite amazing. Rather than getting together in a huddle to protect themselves from the cold, they did something quite unexpected, that no other penguins can do.”
Above right (click for larger view) is a screen shot that I took of the incredible footage they captured. You can read more of this amazing story here.
The wonderful video of them flying is just unbelievable! Have a look.
