Commenti must say I had to consult the experts, Ian Wilson, to identify this tern I photographed near Coral Bay.
I will quote Ian Wilson - "a Roseate Tern at the start of the breeding season. Long bill, slight pink wash on under-parts, long tail streamers are all good ID points for Roseate. The bill is all black at the beginning of the breeding season and changes to red by the time chicks hatch. The legs get brighter red as breeding season progresses. The under-wing helps distinguishes it from Common Tern." Thanks Ian.
