Thanks to Mike and everyone else for replying. The replies seem to be
unanimous with it being a Black Noddy.

Does anyone know if the Black Noddy is a common or often sighted bird from

Mark Young

The Common Noddy you had a couple of weeks ago looks like a young bird. This

one is a Black Noddy, adult I suggest. Apart from diagnostic bill shape note

that underwings are wholly black whereas in Common Noddy they would be brown

and appear paler.
