Terns, Biebrza, Poland

Is it acceptable to use this forum just for confirmation? If not, please let me know and I won't do it again.

It seems to me we have seen four (for us) new tern species in Biebrza, did we identify them correctly?

1. Black tern (I searched for one among heaps of white-winged terns, I found only this one on 400 pictures!)

2. White-winged tern (this one should be obvious)

3. Whiskered tern

4. Little tern

It's okay to use this for confirmation. And I can confirm your IDs!
