Birds from Lake Duluti (Tanzania) - Tern, Heron & More

Hi all -

Can anyone help me with a few IDs from Lake Duluti in northern Tanzania. These were all taken in early October:

(1) Terns - which kind?
(2) A heron, maybe immature?
(3) Tawny-flanked Prinia? (sorry for the poor quality picture)

Thanks!!

2. Looks like a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron.

Agree on the heron.

The terns look like White-winged.

Can't see any alternative to Tawny-flanked Prinia.

Great, thanks. The terns in non-breeding plumage are tricky!
