I think you've got two species here, a Calidris sandpiper (possibly a Dunlin) and a Charadrius plover. It might help to know when and where they were photographed to provide a bit more context to aid identification down to species.

I'll stick with Dunlin for the Calidris (looks to have a bit of black on the belly in the picture top right). The plover I think is probably a Kentish but I'm having a bit of trouble with plovers lately so I'll maybe leave the verdict to someone else though!

I'd agree with juvenile Dunlin (juvenile, because of the dark flank spotting) and Kentish Plover.

The plover is distinctly smaller than the Dunlin, has a prominent wingbar, no full breast band, prominent white sides to the rump, and very long dark legs, all Kentish features.
