I have a checklist that's been giving me headaches for almost two months - too much heat glare, too many small waders... so I've decided to get rid of it and move on :) I would be grateful for any opinion you can provide on the photos below (even if you think the photo is too bad for id).
1. sand plover: lesser vs greater. I've looked at these until I got dizzy :)
I think greater:
I think lesser:
2. temmink's stint? or some kind of sandpiper? are the photos to bad to tell?
3. little stint? almost sure of pics 3 and 4, but it's more orange than i've usually seen, so I want to double check.
I changed my mind again about pic 2, now i think curlew sandpiper...
4. dunlin? or curlew sandpiper?
5. curlew? the bill seems a little short...
