I'm not getting an Arctic or Common vibe here. Has the 'feel' of a young Sandwich Tern to me: short bill, incomplete brown hood, dark tail sides, broad trailing edge to under primaries, secondary...

It's an eclipse drake, illustrated in Collins. The only field guide you'll ever need most of the time in Europe.

Further to the above, a comparison with your bird and at least 3 or 4 different Whimbrels (upper and lower centre is same bird).

Eurasian Curlews can have more strongly marked heads than your bird...

This is a Curlew, and perhaps a male as they have shorter bills.

Some Whimbrels are less well marked on their heads, but I doubt any would be as subtle as this bird.

Not true for male Twite in breeding plumage, which also has a grey bill. Agree that this is a Linnet though :t:

I don't know about the distribution of either species in Romania, but I would have expected Skylark to be widely distributed in most of Europe.

It's not parted feathers. Very young Y Wags have a gorget of streaks/blotches but quickly lose them after a few weeks.

Looks like a recently fledged Yellow Wagtail rather than a pipit. Also far more likely than a Richard's Pipit at the given location/time.
