Common Tern, UK? (1 Viewer)

GWB77

Grafham Water Birder
Video from today in Norfolk.

Assumed to be a dark-billed (2nd-summer?) Common Tern in the field (especially given the deep based and not very long bill), but the very pale primaries were at odds with all the (adult) Common Terns present.

It didn't scream-out Roseate, so just making sure others agree?
