That looks like a juvenile wheatear to me

Yes, you're right, that looks like a better identification. Juveniles are difficult! (Or maybe I am a bit useless.)

Wrong lens, but still an oyster catcher.

If you don't like your democracy, vote against it.

Meadow pipit
Indeed. It will have been flying up into the air and 'parachuting' down giving a single repeated note, "tee-tee-tee-tee-etc". White outer tail feathers?

Comon as muck now.  They hang around tips (like the one in Didcot and the one near Middleton Stoney); Victorians used to call them "shitehawks" instead of their formerly common name "kitehawks".  Basically they're posh crows.
Never tell me the odds.
