Aren't they both just Little Tern? Usually Saunder's have a grey rump, uppertail-coverts and tail. Neither of these birds appear to have that...though it is difficult to see on the right hand bird and of course the strong sunlight could obscure the true color on the left hand bird.

Also I think if the left hand bird was Saunder's you would have all black primaries...only half he primaries seem to be black on the bird in the photo.
