Can you please help with the ID of these Terns and Gull/s spotted in the Gambia. (1 Viewer)

Sandwich terns at front, grey-headed gull at bottom right (if I believe the white-looking iris is real), Caspian terns at the back and right, and... err, yes... the tricky ones... royal terns, I guess - unless the one at far left cowering under a Caspian's bill is lesser crested.
