The first looks like an Armenian Gull to me: dark eye, extensive black on the wing with only one window on front edge

For the second, I would choose Caspian over Yellow-legged due to bill descriptions in "Birds of Europe"; for Caspian, "Bill long and evenly narrow with attenuated point, lacking marked gonys angle." For Yellow-legged: "Heavy bill with strongly-curved tip and well-marked gonys angle in most...." 

Not willing to make a guess on the third :-)
