Common Tern taking bread

This may be a first. We are all familiar with gulls and other birds taking bread but it was a big surprise to see a Common Tern swooping down to pick up bits of bread thrown into the water. It was quite agressive towards other birds trying to get the food. This was in the middle of Malthouse Broad in the Norfolk Broads.
