The gull-billed tern ("Gelochelidon nilotica"), formerly "Sterna nilotica", is a seabird of the tern family, Sternidae. It is now considered to be in its own genus. The genus name is from Ancient Greek "gelao", "to laugh", and "khelidon", "swallow". The specific " niloticus" is from Latin and means of the Nile.
It is one of the most important breeding sites in Western Australia for "Gelochelidon nilotica" (Gull-billed Tern) and "Chlidonias hybridus" (Whiskered Tern). It is also an important refuge for other waterbirds, the nearest adjacent wetland, Wooleen Lake, being nearly away.
Passage migrants include "Nycticorax nycticorax", "Ardeola ralloides", "Ardea purpurea", "Plegadis falcinellus", "Pandion haliaetus", "Falco vespertinus", "Milvus migrans", "Circus pygargus", "Hieraaetus pennatus", "Himantopus himantopus", "Glareola pratincola", "Calidris temminckii", "Tringa stagnatilis", "Larus audouinii", "Gelochelidon nilotica", "Chlidonias leucopterus", "Chlidonias hybridus", "Coracias garrulus", "Anthus cervinus", "Plegadis falcinellus", "Oenanthe isabellina" and "Oenanthe pleschanka".
Bawean hosts other rare mammals, such as crab-eating macaque ("Macaca fascicularis"), Sunda porcupine ("Hystrix javanica"), small Indian civet ("Viverricula indica"), Asian palm civet ("Paradoxurus hermaphroditus"). Most common birds are black-crowned night heron ("Nycticorax nycticorax"), purple heron ("Ardea purpurea"), great frigatebird ("Fregata minor") and gull-billed tern ("Gelochelidon nilotica"). Reptiles are represented by different kinds of lizards ("Varanus" sp .), reticulated python ("python reticulatus") and saltwater crocodile ("Crocodylus porosus") which sometimes (rarely) swims to the island.
Along with the regions in north such as the Cintra Bay and Dakhla Peninsula, the area is one of the most important wintering grounds for Eurasian spoonbill ("Platalea leucorodia leucorodia"). Breeding birds include white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus"), reed cormorant ("Phalacrocorax africanus"), gull-billed tern ("Gelochelidon nilotica"), Caspian tern ("Hydroprogne caspia"), royal tern ("Sterna maxima") and common tern ("Sterna hirundo"), together with several species or subspecies with an African distribution, such as heron ("Ardea cinerea monicae") and Eurasian spoonbill ("Platalea leucorodia balsaci") and western reef heron ("Egretta gularis") (IUCN, 1987).
