Sooty Tern, Muriwai Gannet Colony

From Bård Nyberg on New Zealand Birders facebook:

"A sooty tern at the gannet colony in Muriwai this evening. Took night roost in the gap between the lookouts.
Photographed by Terje Kolaas"

I'll check it out at sunrise, a lucky coincidence I am staying at Muriwai tonight!

An interesting consolation prize is a long-tailed cuckoo in the bush by the colony.
