Spurn UK Oct ID suggestions please

Spurn 30/10/2019 , picked up the Isabelline Wheatear but missed the Bluethroat.
Down at the breach , on the rocky shoreline , looking into the sun saw a Redstart sized bird , uniformally dark plumage but with distinctive outer white tail feathers , continously tail flicking.
Couldn't get any closer to ID , long shot I know but any ideas?
