  • Antarctic Tern at Cape Nelson, Victoria reported by Kevin Bartram, Rob Farnes on 20-05-2018
    On a seawatch off Cape Nelson with Rob Farnes. Saw an interesting tern for around 15 minutes at about 300 m between 9.50 and 10.05. Had White-fronted and Crested Terns to directly compare to it. It was mid grey above with a contrasting gleaming white rump. Bill blackish, cap black with a white forehead. Wings were mid grey with at most a diffuse dark trailing edge on the upperwing. Underwing white with no distinct black trailing edge, I could make out a faint and diffuse slightly darker trailing edge on around the outer 4-5 primaries. White rump rules out all but Arctic Tern and lack of a distinct black trailing edge rules out Arctic. The only option left is an immature Antarctic Tern in Non-breeding plumage. BARC submission is pending.
