Pratincole sp. Dobrugea, Romania 2018

I understand the Collared Pratincole is the common species in this region. Also, the black-winged Pratincole, in spite of being rare, has on occasion been recorded.
However please can anyone advise about features seen in the photo's attached of the bird seen
Thanks in advance.

Overall pale colouration and amount of red on bill suggests Collared

I believe I can see tail longer than wing tip in the upper image which is another distinguishing feature
