To complete the story of a common tern chasing the least tern... the least tern gave up after few minutes... Can you see the dropped fish?

The fish landed in a very shallow water, the common tern was quick to pick it up. +1 common tern. 
It is amazing how focused they are and how easily they can apply brakes when it looked like an 100MPH chase before.
