My lame attempt: Lesser crested tern and Common tern (longipennis)?

Correct!!! Muin I wonder if U free this Sunday

Oh... well OK then - I guess that's the end of the quiz!

Actually, the Common Tern has a rather red bill, which means it's probably not longipennis, but the image is too small for you to see that, so well done Muin!

There I was all geared up to put in my guess, clicked on the comment button and saw the answers! Luckily I was going to say the same species.. (but I would say that, wouldn't I!) :)

Sorry about that Terry - I'll have to get Hakim to curb his enthusiasm next time!
