Ibis, Sandpiper, Cormorant and Tern ID help (Cancun, Mexico)

A recent trip to Mexico I observed this ibis, tern (bottom right of pic) and cormorant on a neighbouring lake to my hotel, all of which I need help in identifying. I assume the ibis is a white ibis? Im also unsure of the ID of sandpipers found on the beach.

1. Left to right ruddy turnstone, Least sandpiper, Sanderling
2. Double-crested/Neotropic probably the former.
3. White ibis and sandwich tern
4. Semipalmated Sandpiper

I don't believe it's split in the Americas.

It has not been split.

And, I agree with Tom's identifications.

But Oliver who asked the question, is from UK, so more likely following the international IOC list
