As an alternative from photographing the float equipped Twin Otters which visited several times each day I managed to photograph the resident Black-Naped Terns:

At a casual glance I'd pass those off as w/pl Sandwich Terns so thanks for making me look more closely!

Would you know what the smaller interloper in the middle is please?

Thanks!

That is a truly beautiful image. That would work as a large print hung on my wall. Beautiful.
