Visited Byron Bay Feb. 1 and amongst Common and Crested Terns mucking about off the lighthouse were two Arctic Tern, one winter plumage adult and a first-winter type. The frosty primaries and bright white rump and tail stood out, also the spiky proportions, with very good lighting and viewing from directly above for once. A long overdue Oz tick- Yay!
