While enjoying brunch on the Rockingham foreshore yesterday (June 14) a
group of 5 Roseate Terns turned up including a juvenile which landed on the
beach and was fed a couple of times by an adult. Could this indicate a very
late breeding event by Roseate Terns?  Mid June seems unusually late. The
Silver Gulls in this part of the world are autumn as well as spring
breeders. Perhaps Roseate Terns are following their lead?
