Hi, there were 3 terns flying close to the ferry as it was about 10 minutes out from docking at Koh Samui, on Nov 20 at about 1:30 pm. My supposition is black naped terns but I am seeking confirmation or correction please. 2 different birds are pictured here.
Thank you in advance for your assitance
