Long-toed stint ID was based on yellow-green legs and tall, unusual posture. Not associating with Red-necks up the beach.

Possible Pectoral ID was based on long bill (obvious on Green Island bird) and clean breast demarcation (obvious on Cairns bird). However I agree about the red crown being more characteristic of a Sharpie. I would value comments from knowledgeable wader-watchers.

Both Cairns birds were at the far northern end of the esplanade at high tide on Tuesday 30th.
