East Sussex, more Terns...

Specifically went chasing a reported juvenile Arctic Tern at Weir Wood Reservoir today in East Sussex, UK, and I'm really hoping I managed to connect with it! My impression is #2-4 are all common terns and 1 & 5 are candidates for the arctic, but my track record on these things isn't too great...

Not brilliant photos but none of them look like Arctic Tern to me.
