I think this is a Red-Rumped-Swallow but am not 100% sure, maybe a Mosque Swallow? Any opinions?

And another one I´m unsure about:

Common Sandpiper? Terek Sandpiper? Something else? (I´m helpless with these wading birds.)

 

Taken at Lake Nakuru, the swallow at the Aberdares btw.

I think the wader is a ruff. I could be wrong though..

Ah, I think you're right. The colour scheme does not quite match the illustrations in my books, but it says there that they are very variable. The scaly back and the colour of the legs fit perfectly. Thanks for the help, @@kittykat23uk

Agree with ruff. Do you have any other pictures of the swallow? Also, location might help here. It might be red-rumped, but some of these swallows are very similar to each other.
