Really bad pictures of these birds, but Northern Gannet would be a lifer for me and that is certainly what they looked like.

Sanderlings?

Four gannets in the first one (can’t tell for the darker bird; seabirds aren’t my strong suit), and is say that the second photo looks okay for Sanderlings.

Agreed. Darker bird is probably a juvenile gannet, but hard to tell.

That bird is a subadult. First-cycle Northern Gannets are dark-headed and dark-winged.
