I saw the same behaviour over a dry farm paddock near Geelong in Victoria.
It was some time ago and I do not recall which Terns they were, but
approximately 20 - 30 birds were involved and they were making regular
patterned sweeps of the paddock.  I think that the paddock had been recently
harvested or slashed.  It was so unusual we stopped and watched for a time.
