Terns in Romania

Hello!

I have been struggling to make an ID on many different Terns from a trip to Romania in July 2018...

Can someone confirm these, which is what, then it will help me figure some more out...

My guess:

First: White Winged Tern (Juvenile)
Second: Black Tern
Third: Wiskered Tern (Juvenile)
Fourth: A bigger group of White Winged (Juvenile) and a Common Tern in the background

Thanks for your info... I see I still have a lot to learn...

What about 2 and 4 picture.. It's not possible to determine?

All pictures are taken on the east coast, around Vadu...

I think there are some Blacks in the 4th photo, e.g. the one in front of the flapping WWT?
