I can't figure out what I have been witnessing!!

I decided to walk my dog before work as she was beginning to dig a lot of holes around the lawns and such so I thought that if I started doing this, it would calm her down a bit from doing these things.

It is still dark when I wake up so I decided to grab a torch and go with her then which is usually around 05:30 - 06:00 am. As I walked along my local road which is a small road and very quiet, I noticed a red flashing light going across the sky which also changed to a yellow flashing light in quick succession. At first I thought that this was a plane going across and carried on but still glanced up at it as I walked. I soon noticed that this object, whatever it was, was flying in strange flight paths as it moved up and down and also went faster and slower, like it was hovering in the air. I was amazed to see this as I could hear no sound to prove that it could be a helicopter. I carried on focusing on it and as I had a torch with me, I pointed it towards this and flashed the torch by turning it on and off just out of curiosity. Suddenly the strange lights just dis-appeared on me. I carried on with the walk wondering to myself what it might be. As I had walked about a mile, I decided to turn back and head for home. About halfway back I noticed it again but in a different area of the sky doing the same thing, just hovering across the sky and stopping for a couple of seconds, turning to go the other way and then turning back the way it was going and moving on only to dis-appear again.

When I got home I looked again and just over my village, I noticed a white light about the same size of a star in the sky but much lower and it was hovering over the village itself going back and forward and up and down.

This amazed me so I said to myself to do the same the next morning to see if I would see it again and to my surprise I did!! It was the same lights, yellow, red and white changing to each colour quickly like they were going round in a circle. I had my camera this time but as soon as my flash went off these lights dis-appeared again and nothing showed up on my camera. I focused up on the sky looking around to see if I could find it.It was an overcast sky as rain was due to fall later that morning but yet I could see the stars. As I looked closely around the stars, I noticed that these so called stars were moving in different places, some moving fast accross the sky and stopping and others slowly, sometimes just dis-appearing. I found this so unexplainable and in between all these white lights in the sky the flashing red,yellow and white object appeared, going across the sky hovering up and down slowly as though it was examining the area( that's what it seemed like to me). I grew really interested in all this especially because what I believed was stars were moving around also! The next morning I decided to go out earlier and was out at about 4:30 am with my camera and decided to just take random pictures one after another and see what I can pick up at the end of it all. Over a period of 2 mornings, today and yesterday morning I took a total of 230 pictures and some that I caught were very interesting. I caught one or two that I simply cannot explain and would be willing to share them with you if you would like to hear from me further on this matter. That is basically all for now. If you want to hear from me then that is okay by me.

Upto now I was very skeptical about all this but as of now, my mind is in two places as to what is going on around here in the night sky.
