There are few records of the Roseate Tern breeding along the coast of Borneo. However since last year, this bird has been observed in breeding plumage on a small rocky outcrop just off the Layang-layangan beach on the west side of Labuan island. I was able to visit this location in June this year and saw that indeed these birds were breeding here. There was a small colony of this species together with Bridled and Black-naped Terns. I had been hoping to see this tern for a long time and it was a wonderful moment. Thanks to my birding friends from Labuan.
