A pair of King Penguins explore the abandoned whaling station of Grytviken, South Georgia

The old abandoned whaling station of Grytviken on the island of South Georgia is now home to many species of Antarctic birds and mammals - terns, Elephant seals, fur seals and King penguins all live and breed in and around the broken, rusty remains of old boilers, once used to boil up giant whale carcasses.
