And the Green Plover Russ, is this a young bird. ?

And would that be a Bempton Gannet as your avatar. ?

Right on both counts, Brian :-)
Not sure whether the Lapwing is a juv or not - but could be with its bright plumage?

Nice capture of the iridescence, something that is difficult to capture and show to its true colours! Coudl be improved by the head being more up, they are so damned uncooperative!!
I do not think it is a juveile bird but an adult 'past its best'.
