Fri 6highlightBridled Tern
Robe Sth Australia
Sighted two Bridled Terns on a rock about 70 m offshore on a rock. About 150 m south of the outlet from Fox's Lake into the sea. They were not Sooty terns as they were lighter in colour ( Light to medium grey and they had a white eyebrow extending past their eye as against the Sooty Tern which finishes at the eye. My Bins were 10 x 42 Monarch 7 Nikon and my wife also saw them to verify their I.D. Weather was fine and sunny at about 10 A.M.
