Havannah-evening sunshine

I seem to be getting a bit hooked on Havannah. I just feel that the wide variation of habitat will provide the chance of turning up some surprises during the year.
But first off, I could do with some help in identifying the birds in the first two images below,in what was a flock of about 25 birds flying over, so my images are a bit limiting.

There were many birds out in the last hour of sunshine atop the scrubby bushes.
Bullfinch, Yellowhammer numbers are growing, Long-tailed Tit, Chaffinch, Lapwing, Goldfinch, Sparrowhawk (just failed to down a Woodpigeon), Mistle thrush(and by the way the two Mistle thrushes which left our garden after a Sparrowhawk attack last week put in a re-appearance yesterday), Reed Bunting, Grey Heron.

European Golden Plover to give them their Sunday name, I had 48 a couple of days ago near home so they are on the move inland to breed.
