hello all.
Saw this bird two days ago at Cullendulla Creek and it stood out due to its aparently smaller size and orangey bill:
Lesser Crested Tern would be a surprise indeed (and I am not expecting it to be one), but the area has been a bit of a purple patch of late (2) Bar-shouldered Doves yesterday, 2) White-plumed Honeyeaters present for 2 weeks now (both species are vagrants to the south coast), Eastern Osprey etc etc...)
Cheers and thanks for your time!
PS: Heading back to cold Canberra in a few minutes. Not happy one bit. :-P.
