I'm not great with my bird IDs but I think here I've managed to capture a Black Tailed Godwit and a Reed Bunting? If I'm wrong please tell me! Shot these at Farlington Marshes in Portsmouth, was hoping to get some bird of prey shots but no luck today.

Edit - Since been informed that what I thought was a Reed Bunting is actually a Meadow Pipit

Nice shots. Looks like you ID'd the godwit correctly, but the beak on the sparrow is not a bunting beak. Too long and thin. On top of the beak, the streaking is much too bold to be a reed bunting. I am not familiar enough with old world birds to know it off the top of my head. Best of luck :)

Could the last one be a Tree Pipit? Not that familiar with birds in your neck of the woods.

I've been told on another forum that it's a Meadow Pipit
