Forwarded from interesting record of a Common Tern in the 
ACT.This is the first record of this species for the ACT and according to 
HANZAB, a 'rare' inland record.

An adult Eastern Common Tern (Sterna hirundo longipennis), still in breeding 
plumage, was with the flock of Whiskered Terns (approximately 15) at the 
largest pond at Fyshwick Sewage Treatment Plant this evening until sunset.  The 
bird was visible from the Old Dairy Flat Road at the heavy green gate looking 
towards the green hut.
