Seven fledging Adelie penguin Pygoscelis adeliae chicks and 4 post-moult adults were satellite tracked using the Argos system during the winters of 1995-97 and 1998, respectively. Six fledglings departed from Bechervaise Island near Mawson station (67° 35' S, 62° 49' E) during late February of 1996 and 1997 and were tracked for up to 5 mo before transmissions stopped. The 7th fledgling left Magnetic Island near Davis station (68° 33' S, 77° 54' E) in February 1995 and was tracked for 32 d. All… Expand
