Hi everyone,

Some concern has been raised about the identity of the bird, mainly because the 
images available thus far have been photographs emailed from a phone taken from 
the phone camera of the rear of the digital camera screen. I probably should 
have said "possible" on my post yesterday but the discussions about this bird 
last night were pointing at a Black Tern. It will be difficult to actually be 
certain until the camera images can be looked at properly. Unfortunately, this 
may not be until the end of the weekend. 

Will keep you posted.

Just a quick note to tell you that a Black Tern is currently being watched 
going to roost at the bore water cooling ponds by Allan Richardson, who found 
and photographed the bird this afternoon. 

The bird looks like one of the race niger  (Eurasian Black Tern) which may not 
have been confirmed in Australia before? 

Images have been posted on Birdline and are doing the rounds on Facebook 

I'll post updates tomorrow as I receive them from Al.
