The Arctic tern Sterna paradisaea has the longest distance migration of any bird, and sees more daylight than any other, moving from its Arctic breeding grounds to the Antarctic non-breeding areas.

Arctic tern Sterna paradisaea

One Arctic tern, ringed (banded) as a chick on the Farne Islands off the British east coast, reached Melbourne, Australia in just 3 months from fledging, a sea journey of over 22,000 km.
