Antarctic terns

Antarctic terns at sea and at the old whaling station at Grytviken, South Georgia, where, incidentally, lies the body of Ernest Shackleton.  Antarctic terns are similar in appearance to Arctic terns but, unlike their northern cousins, they do not migrate, preferring to remain in the southern oceans all year round.
