I initially identified this tern incorrectly, but after spotting a few more, I was able to get a shot of the white forehead. I also was able to observe their nesting from a distance which helped with the ID. The last photo is of an egg I found approx. 400-500 yards from the nesting grounds, and I suspect was snatched up by a gull who dropped it where it lay.
