Tern looks like an Arctic

Don't think it does, although it seems to lack the dark bill tip that's usually present in Common. Otherwise it looks like a Common (wing pattern and plumage tone, tail length). The bill is still quite orange-red rather than blood red, as it would be on an Arctic.

Also, the underside of the flight feathers (including secondaries) is contrastingly darker than the underwing coverts.
