The Black-fronted Tern waiting to be fed on the Punakaiki Rocks on the West Coast, our third day of my friends from the UK, trip around the South Island. We left Christchurch at 6:30am as we had a long day of travelling making our way over the Lewis Pass to Punakaiki and our first night stop over at Hokitika on the West Coast. The Black-fronted Tern (Chlidonias albostriatus) also known as Sea Martin, Ploughboy, Inland Tern, Riverbed Tern or Tarapiroe, is a small tern generally found in or near bodies of fresh water in New Zealand and forages for freshwater fish, arthropods and worms. It has a predominantly grey plumage. Restricted to breeding in the eastern regions of South Island, it is declining and threatened by introduced mammals and birds. For More Info:
