Sussex, UK Tern

To be honest I'm pretty sure this is a common tern, but to this day I have absolutely no clue how to separate Common from Arctic, and some Arctics have been reported at this site recently. Any...

One more Peru Bird (a seedeater)

Hi all,
Been looking through my photos of band-tailed seedeaters from Peru and this one looks a bit different? Smaller bill and much plainer breast; is it still just a band-tailed seedeater though?
