Gull-billed Tern

Gelochelidon nilotica

This pale tern with its stubby, black bill is a rare summer vagrant to coastal lagoons and wetlands in southern Africa.

Although we have not seen this bird in southern Africa, we were able to connect with it in September 2011 while staying at Che Shale near Malindi on the east coast of Kenya.
