Michaelo,

I think it's a turnstone in Winter plumage. In summer they have more white on the head. Most seen in the UK are winter visitors though a few are resident (non-breeding).

This is an excellent capture, Michael, you have a lot of detail in the bird's plumage.
I don't know if you have done any editing work on the picture as far as cleaning the background is concerened. The background rock is tending to obscure the outline of the bird and the outline of the rock on which it is perched, so I have removed it in my modification. I also cropped, enhanced the eye and sharpened.
Pamela.

Nice image. Just needs a bit of lightening with the dodge tool for head detail and it may be a touch over sharpened. It is a Turnstone.
