STUNNED locals were frozen to the spot after seeing a penguin waddling along a beach in Kent.

Natasha Parry, 41, also clocked the out-of-place bird before it plunged into the freezing English Channel.
The mum of four said: “I was walking my dog when I saw what I thought was a penguin but when I got closer it waddled into the sea and shot off.
“I told my friends and they thought I had gone insane. It’s absolutely crazy to think that a penguin would be here in Ramsgate. It’s definitely the weather for penguins, it’s been absolutely freezing.

“A lot of people are saying they feel sorry for it — it’s a lost penguin and it has been separated from its family.”
Last night experts were establishing whether it had escaped from a zoo.
But some people suggested it may have been lured by our Arctic ­conditions and swam 6,000 miles from South Africa.
Others claimed it could be a similar-looking bird such as a guillemot. However the hashtag SavePingu was spreading in a bid to rescue it.

Natasha added: “I know what I saw. We don’t care what anyone says, that’s our Pingu, the Ramsgate Penguin.”
