To me it is a shore rockling, the coloration is mainly brown, whilst the three bearded is much more colourful, and has bloched markings, and the mouth does not extend beyond the eye as it does with the three bearded.
On second thoughts, the jury is out on this one. if it is a shore rockling, it is a big one. pity not a clear view of the head/mouth as that can easily seperate them, as the 3 bearded's mouth extends well back beyonrd the mouth. where on the shore one it it only just reaches the rear of the eye.
