3 is a Temminck´s stint. Agree with KGS on the rest.

You could be right with Temminck´s and I guess it is the dark-looking head/breast and that makes you think so. Things that look less good for Temminck´s and in my opinion could favour RN are long (especially tibia) and dark-looking legs and heavy rump

Indeed the dark breast (not limited to the side) leaving only a small white patch to the chin is pro-Temminck's. The upperparts are uniformely grey (RNS with darkish center to the scapulars); likewise the crown looks uniform (streaked on RNS).
Regarding the legs: being in the shade, I don't think their colour can be accurately gauge but they don't look that dark to me anyway and Temminck's stint may appear longer-legged than expected at times: http://www.oiseaux.net/photos/aureli...k.1.html#monde .
Fianally the prominent eye-ring and the bill shape with a tappering tip looks much better for Temminck's.

Not sure the uniform upperparts are a true feature of this bird. It looks oversharpened and over corrected for noise, which tends to even out any feather features. Look at the rocks and sea, there is little detail there either.
