Common Tern - Makrellterne - Sterna hirundo
Fisktärna - Fjordterne - Kalatiira - Sterne pierregarin

Common Tern are not generally seen in large numbers at Skogsøy and are outnumbered by Arctic tern. They turn up in early May, and are present throughout the summer months until the second half of September. 

The occurence pattern for this species seems very similar to that of Utsira.

The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Common Tern have been recorded and the green one (numbers on right hand axis) shows the average numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
