2- my guess is a little tern, Sterna albifrons.

3- the eternal conflict, lesser or greater plover.

i'm irritated by the small yellow patch on bill base of lower mandible in the cormorant - otherwise looking like a socotra (but i haven't seen the sp.)

agree on 2 and 3 with tibault (gull-billed and kentish)

4 - no experience with the species either but it looks long billed and long tailed to me. long super. blurry median covert centres. is this a long-billed pipit?
