The bird of prey has a smallish head and plain head colouring and what appear to be dots on its front , so i am going for a kestrel. The small wader I think has to be a little stint? The larger wader with the little stint looks like a sandpiper and I am going for a wood sandpiper. Thank you

Thanks Steve. I spotted the Wood Sandpiper with my Binoculars and then managed to get a reasonable shot.

structure of 'wood sand' fits but apparent plain upperparts are irritating - prob. a photo effect
