Sorry for poor heavily cropped photos the bird was pretty distant. Which loon species - is that some white I see showing on the flanks? Or just Common?

I'd call that just a Common due to the spur of white on the dark neck and heavy bill.

Common Loons occasionally will show whitish flanks/expose their white belly. Arctic Loons have more extensive bright white on the flanks.

That’s another Common, unfortunately. Note how there’s a spur of white on the neck — Arctics/Pacifics would have a straight line separating the gray and white on the neck.
