2. Redshank, Common Tern and Turnstone
3. Ruff (but seems to have supercilium of a Wood Sandpiper?!)
4. Juvenile Sanderling
5. Adult Sanderling
P.S. Everyone is always happy to help with I.D., but might I suggest that you consider buying the new "Collins Bird Guide - 2nd edition" (you will find it on Amazon, or just "Google" for it). You will learn more, more quickly, by trying to identify birds for yourself .

I agree with colin but number 3 looks to me like a knot?

Yes, number 3 is a juvenile Knot.
