Staff at Looe Tourist Information Centre are asking if anyone else has seen a penguin on a Cornish beach after a visitor said he had spotted one waddling about.
The centre says that on Wednesday, a man came in and said to staff he had seen a penguin on Hannafore Beach.
While staff explained that it was probably a guillemot or an oyster catcher he was sure it was a penguin, he had seen one in New Zealand.
In a message on Facebook the centre said: "The gentleman phoned up yesterday to ask if there had been anymore sightings. If anybody is up that way enjoying the sunshine today, please keep an eye out for a lost penguin, and if you see it please tell us."
