Always hard for me to ID these little ones...

Thank you for your feedback.

First and fourth are Kentish Plovers, please note complete white ring at neck and long legged jizz with short rear end of the first bird, good for this species.
The others are Greater or Lesser Sandplovers, I have only seen one before. So I wait for others, so I can learn.
Edit: the two birds on the second picture are Kentish Plovers, too, but not obvious ones. At least for me.

Thank you, Alexander. That was very helpful.

I'll wait to hear what photos #3 and #5 may look like to other members. Probably Greater and Lesser Sandplovers as you pointed out.

Cheers!
