Sterna sp. (South Africa)

Hello!

I observed and photographed these terns on the 28.09. at the Cape of Good Hope (Table Mountain NP). Due to a lack of experience I'm not able to identify them on a species level, and it seems to me to be more than one species. I can identify the Hartlaub's Gulls (Chroicocephalus hartlaubii) and some Sandwich terns (Thalasseus sandvicensis) in the photos, but am at a loss regarding the other terns.
