Jacques Stone has a question: My dad and I went to Rietvlei Nature reserve yesterday and while sitting in the hide at Rietvlei dam, we sam a tern flying by. It had an all black head and a white stripe running from the base of the bill, to just after and above the eye. It had a grey back and grey upperwings and upperparts and white anderparts and wings, amd black legs. When I consulted my fieldguide I saw no such tern, except for the Bridled tern and the sooty tern. Because both of them are extremely rare and was only sighted a few times inland, it is highly unlikely to be one of those two. Unfortunately I could only capture one pic of it and it may be a leading contender for one of the worst pics I have ever taken. Does anybody have any idea what it can be????
