Common Redshank it is, Bill would be more slender and longer, the overall shape of Spot red is thinner and more elegant looking too.

the first bird could be a juv common sandpiper, did you notice/photograph the white extension to the shoulder?

ps I'd rather be in a cork forest than my living room!

Balls. One out of three! I thought about Common Sand but thought the white might be the body position. Thought it was too dark. Now can see the long tail as well. I could go on...

Don't worry, my shout would have been the same as yours too!
