UHD Special -The Secret of the Little Tern Seabird of the Inland Lake

How can the Little Tern, a seabird, survive in an inland lake after its shore habitat is destroyed? Using remote cameras, we captured in 4k resolution its behavior from mating, nesting and parenting to kidnapping chicks from neighboring nests. By the way, the little terns faced many dangers. Natural predator, the eagle owl, killed off the chicks that couldn't fly. Localized heavy rainfall caused the sand island to flood and submerge it. However, the chicks made a dramatic escape and lived on.
