Yes, Kingfishers do visit the coastline during the Winter months and can be seen perched on rocks, groynes and anything handy whilst they wait, hunt.
Try looking up Rock or Meadow Pipit.

It's very unlikely you saw an Eastern or Western Bluebird as they are North American species that have never been recorded in the UK. Perhaps it was a male Chaffinch. Enjoy your new pastime, a field...
