Ashmore Reef 09 -- Terns


Bridled Tern Onychoprion anaethetus

Crested Tern Thalasseus bergii

Sooty Tern Onychoprion fuscata

First Sooty Tern seen on the first day of the trip!
One way to cool off is to skim the surface picking up water on your feathers
which then evaporates creating cooling.
Rookery One
Too hot to sit on. The egg needs some shade!
