It is a mystery why it strayed so far from home.
Photographer and conservationist David Higgins thinks the bird might have spent months at sea after losing its bearings.
The 51 year old, from Hull, said: “Penguins are flightless birds and, although used to long periods at sea, this royal penguin must have spent several months getting here.
“It must have got lost following its prey and found itself thousands of miles from its breeding grounds between New Zealand and Antarctica.
“It must have been very surprised when it came ashore to find the gentoo penguins.”The native colony of gentoo penguins are giving the royal penguin a wide berthCredit: Solent News

David added: “He seemed to be bossing them around.
