Redcars much lovedÂ penguin colony created by “The Great British Bollard Company”Â moved from their old location with the building of the new bandstand
There were temporarily removedÂ to a ‘secret’ locationÂ in 2006 for theÂ filming of Atonement, as apparentlyÂ no concrete penguinsÂ were present during theÂ Dunkirk evacuation.
UPDATE : As of August 2012 the penguins are gone again. I don’t know whether they will return to the sea-front when the redevelopment is completed.
UPDATE : The penguins are back in a new location in 2013
