Greater tend to have longer, slightly upturned bills. I don’t see that here, which makes me think Lesser, but sometimes the photo angle makes it hard to see the bill curvature, if there is any.

I think you have both.  I'd say the bird in photos #1, #6, and at the far left of the rest is a Greater Yellowlegs.  The others are Lessers -- they are smaller with shorter bills and they have less-extensive barring on the flanks.

I can see that; is it "normal" for them to mix like that at a marsh? I only saw the 4 individuals, but that doesn't mean there weren't more along the shore.
