I had a similar experience in Svalbard, but I didn't manage to get a shot as good as this. They really are horribly aggressive creatures, and one member of the party had to return to the ship with a nasty head wound.
BTW the spelling shoud be "tern".

My tip is stand next to a tall person, Grin. Amazing how persistant they are in defending their patch.
