I'm wondering how it got it's name as it's front is not black?
Lovely capture though

@stevejacob Not sure, but I think its front is a light grey and calling it that differentiates it from the white fronted tern. I have a feeling it could be to do with the black head cap too, which covers more of the head than a white fronted tern. Neither explanation really validates the name though!
