Saunder's Tern

One for the database, the Saunders Tern [Sterna saundersi] is a fairly common breeding resident and migrant breeder in Oman. Looks like a little Tern I know, but thats a rare migrant here.

Thanks for that Colin, don't know why nobody has bothered updating it. I just came back from my holidays and saw that it hadn't been done.
