Actually, wait, black forehead + very dark wingtips = probably common tern.

These were a bit bigger than Common Terns, I think, though obviously that's impossible to see in this crummy photo. I was thinking more along the lines of Caspian / Royal / Elegant. I guess the dark wingtips would knock out Elegant, right?

My best guess would be Caspian. There is a sign of a crest on the right hand bird but not the shaggy crest of the other two. I think the bill seems too dark for Elegant. These species are all now placed in other genera than Sterna.
