Can anyone help with tern identification please.  In the last 8 days I
have records of "definite" Fairy Terns at Ricketts Point (6 small terns
resting there today at low tide 3.30-4.15 pm and 1 on 10/6); "probable"
Common Tern there yesterday and at Black Rock Point on 11/6; "highly
probable" juvenile White-fronted Tern briefly landed at Ricketts Point
today (I may upgrade it after checking books) and "possible" Caspian
Tern yesterday at a considerable (3 km +) distance.

There have been a few Striated Pardalote and Red-browed Finch records
