The world's smallest breed of penguin has arrived in Europe after six tiny chicks hatched on the south coast of England.<br />
<br />
The group of adorable Fairy Penguins have been born at Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park in Dorset as part of a new breeding programme.<br />
<br />
They will eventually grow to around 13ins tall but now, aged just weeks old, they are the roughly the same size as a large gerbil. <br />
<br />
The pocket-sized creatures were born from a colony of Fairy Penguins from their sanctuary in Australia in 2018.
